Abatement & Appeals
Real Estate / Personal Property Abatements & Appeals
When & How to Apply
If you feel that your property has been overvalued, disproportionately assessed, incorrectly classified, or is exempt from taxation, you may apply to the Assessors’ Office for an abatement. You must file a written request on the approved form.
Applications are only accepted January 2 through February 2. The application below will only be linked during that period.
Board of Assessors Review
Upon receipt of an abatement application, the Assessors’ Office may call you for an appointment in which the Assessors’ staff may conduct both an interior and an exterior inspection of your property. The inspection will assist them in determining the fair cash value of your property. To avoid a denial of your application and to retain your right to appeal the Board of Assessors decision, you must provide all the information requested. The Board of Assessors has three (3) months to act on your abatement application. If the Board of Assessors do not act on your application within this period of time, it is deemed denied
