How do I appeal the Assessor’s appraisal of my property?

Assessor’s Office

To appeal an appraisal, the property owner must object in writing to the Assessor’s Office.

The Assessor’s Office schedules a hearing between the property owner and the Assessor, Deputy Assessor or staff appraiser to discuss reasons for the appeal. After the hearing, the Assessor’s Office sends the property owner a letter describing decisions and appraisal changes if any.

Board of Assessment Appeals

If the property owner has any further objections, they must object in writing and mail to the Boards of Assessment Appeals within 30 days. The Board then schedules a hearing, and after the hearing notifies the property owner in writing of the results.

Administrative Law Court Division

If still aggrieved, the property owner may file an appeal (in writing) with the Administrative Law Court Division in Columbia. To appeal a "Notice of Change of Classification Appraisal and Assessment," the property owner must do so within 90 days of the date of the notice.
