Informal Review

Informal Review

Property owners protesting their assessment can request an informal review and work directly with the Assessor’s Office.

This gives property owners an opportunity to try to reach an agreement with the Assessor’s Office if warranted, and handle at the lowest level at no extra cost to the property owner. This also, prevents owners from having to file a protest with the Board of Review.

If an agreement is met during the informal review period but the property owner decides to protest to the Board of Review, the signed Informal Review Agreement will be null and void and original assessment value will be used for Board of Review.

To assist the Assessor, owners should be willing to or provide any of the following:

  • Schedule an interior inspection with our appraisal staff.
  • Provide any recent appraisal(s).
  • Proof of any inaccurate data.
  • Reasons assessed value is inaccurate. (Would your property sell for the currently assessed amount?)
  • Any other proof requested.

The informal review process is April 2 - April 25 annually.

How to Start:

Send a written request for an informal review to the County Assessor by email, phone, or in person.
