As a property owner, you have rights.
The normal appeal period is from April 2nd to April 30th. Due to the Disaster Declaration the appeal period has been extended to June 5. If after speaking to an appraiser you need to file an appeal form, please download the form "Disaster Counties Petition to Local Board of Revew" and return to our office. It must be back to us on or before June 5 OR postmarked June 5. However, the sooner you return your petition the sooner the Board can act on it. Instructions for filing your petition may also be helpful to you and is located in the Valuation Appeal Form tab.
We will try to handle all appeals through a telephone process, thus eliminating the possible spread of the virus.
