It’s That Time of Year Again


It’s that time of year again…

Property Tax Notice of Assessments are now out in many counties.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • The county tax assessor states a property value on which they will calculate the property tax for the calendar year in the Notice of Assessment.
  • The Notice of Assessment is sent to the owner of record as of January 1 in that tax year.
  • If the property has been sold, either the seller who owned the property as of January or the buyer who currently owns the property may appeal.
  • You do not have to wait to receive the mailed Notice of Assessment – you can look it up at the county tax assessors web site (see links below).
  • No taxes are due at this time, 2018 tax bills will be sent out later this year but your time to object to the value is now – you cannot wait until the bill comes out!
  • All appeals must be filed within 45 days from the date of the Notice of Assessment.
  • If a home’s FMV is higher than expected, we encourage the owner of record to consider an appeal.
  • The assessment notice provides specific instructions on what you must do to appeal.
  • Owners may represent themselves or hire someone to represent them.

Campbell & Brannon’s Property Tax Division can help with your appeal.
