Property Tax Assessment Appeals


The Institute for Local Government has prepared a one page flyer that can help explain the property tax assessment appeals process to the average property owner. It is intended to help local agencies assist property owners who are considering filing an assessment appeal.

 The flyer can be used a number of ways:

  • It can be made available as a handout at assessor’s offices or appeals boards;
  • It can be attached to hard copy or electronic notices; and
  • It can be included as a link in an agency website.

The flyer is available in two forms (see Documents & Resources window at right).

1. A PDF version that can be used as is (including as links in an agency website).

2. A Word version (DOC) that local agencies can customize for their own needs.
