Appealing Your Assessment
If you think your residential property is over-assessed for any of the following reasons, then you may appeal to get your assessment reduced:
- Your property's improvement value is assessed higher, per square foot, than other properties in your neighborhood of similar size, style, and construction.
- The Assessor's description of your property (such as the total square feet of living space) is wrong. However, a minor error does not necessarily indicate an incorrect assessment.
- The Assessor's stated market value for your property is higher than the property's actual market value.
- Your property was uninhabitable for all, or part of, the year due to fire, flood, tornado, or other disaster.
