How Do Property Tax Appeals Work?

  • Normally, each year, the local County Assessor sends out a Notice of Valuation to owners of real property.
  • Listed on the Notice of Valuation is the Full Cash Value which is the Assessor’s opinion of the market value for the property.
  • The Assessor determines the value by considering a variety of legal classifications for property.
  • If a landowner believes the legal classification for their property is improper or that the full cash value the assessor reported for the property is higher than its market value, then the landowner has a right to appeal those determinations.
  • The landowner can seek an administrative tax appeal or a judicial tax appeal.
  • If an administrative appeal is not filed, a landowner may still file a judicial appeal directly with the local Tax Court within the applicable timelines.
  • Our law firm, Francis J. Slavin Law Firm, has experience successfully helping landowners with the property tax appeal process to appeal the valuations for their properties.
