Value Notice & Appeal Information:

2022 Assessed Value Notices were recently mailed to property owners. The Value Notices include the Assessors estimate of market value as of January 2nd, 2022 which will be used to determine payable tax in calendar year 2023.

If you have concerns about the information on this notice, please contact your assessor at the phone number listed on your notice. If your questions or concerns are not resolved via this informal appeal option, there are more formal appeal options are available. Those more formal appeal options are outlined below.

1. Open Book or Local Board of Appeal & Equalization (LBAE) Meetings:

The municipality you live in dictates the appeal option available to you. For those located in cities that hold their own LBAE Meetings, you MUST appeal your value there first if you wish to appeal further at the County Board of Appeal & Equalization (CBAE) meeting in June. Those located in Open Book cities, can appeal directly to the CBAE in June.

2. County Board of Appeal and Equalization (CBAE):

If the Open Book or LBAE processes did not resolve your concerns, you may bring your case to the County Board of Appeal and Equalization meeting.
