The revaluation process continues, and dates have been set for Open Book and Board of Review. Watch the mail for a letter with more details.
Open Book is an informal session where property owners may come to view the new assessment roll. Property owners may also meet with the assessor to discuss the assessment of their property. Property owners may also present any evidence pertaining to value to the assessor for consideration. This is scheduled for Oct 24th from 10:00-1:00 & 2:00-6:00.
Board of Review- In making the decision to appeal, the property owner should be aware that (1) the assessor’s value is presumed correct unless proved otherwise and (2) the evidence presented must establish the fair market value of the property. The best way to establish value is through a recent sale of a comparable property, or a recent real estate appraisal of the property. This is scheduled for Nov 7th from 10:00 – 12:00.
