Filing a property tax appeal (sometimes called a protest) varies by each state and jurisdiction. The most reliable way to file an appeal is to follow the directions given on the notice you are appealing, looking at the jurisdiction’s website, or by calling the jurisdiction. There may be different deadlines for real property and personal property, as well as different deadlines for different jurisdictions within the same state. An appeal form usually needs to be filled out and submitted by the deadline in order for your appeal to be heard. This form typically requires a parcel number, an account number, business or owner name, location, current value as assessed by the jurisdiction and in some cases – your evidence for a reduction in value. Please make sure to confirm all required information prior to your appeal submission.
