How to Appeal an Assessment

To appeal an assessment, you should explain why you believe the value is wrong and provide any combination of the following:

  • Copies of depreciation schedules
  • Income tax filing
  • A list of all equipment owned
  • A complete list of equipment that is leased, loaned or rented by the business

The list or schedules should reflect what was owned on January 1 and identify disposals prior to January 1. Disposals after January 1 are not prorated for the current tax year.

What to Expect After You Appeal

If you appeal, we will mail you a response by September 2, that response will explain how to appeal to the County Board of Equalization (CBOE) if you are still dissatisfied. The County Board of Equalization (CBOE) starts meeting in September.

If you wish to appeal a Count Board of Equalization (CBOE) decision, you must do so within 30 days of the decision. Your options will be described in the board’s response.
