Property owners who want to dispute their reassessment have two options, neither of which are mutually exclusive or require an attorney.
Residents can informally appeal their new property value by requesting that the Office of Property Assessment conduct what’s known as a “First Level Review.”
For FLR reviews, people must be able to prove one of the following, according to the city’s website:
The estimated market value of your home is too high or too low.
The estimated market value of your property is accurate, but inequitable.
The characteristics of your property that affect its value are substantially incorrect. This includes a missing or incorrect abatement or exemption.
The form to get assessors to take a second look will be included in a forthcoming mailing from the city that will notify property owners of their new assessments. Officials said the mailing should arrive by September 1,, 2022.
Property owners can also file a formal appeal of their assessment with the city’s Board of Revision of Taxes
. The deadline, set by the state, is the first Monday in October, which this year is October 3, 2022.
