If after discussing my assessment with the Assessor's office staff I still think the assessment is not correct, what should I do?
You should arrange to appear before the Board of Review to offer sworn testimony and other evidence supporting an alternative estimate of value.

The City Clerk's office will provide you with two forms approved by the Department of Revenue to complete, sign and return. The “Intent to Object to Property Assessment” form and “Property Assessment Objection” form. Both forms must be timely filed to preserve your standing to request a hearing.

The City Clerk’s office will then schedule a time for the Board of Review to hear your testimony and develop a ruling.

According to State Statute, the Board of Review must meet annually within 30 days of the second Monday in May. It is too late to file an objection when you receive your tax bill in December.
Paying your taxes under protest does not constitute an assessment objection. You must have met with the Assessor’s office to discuss your assessment prior to timely filing the required forms to preserve your right to appear before the Board of Review.
