An appeal may be filed within 40 days of the date on the assessment value change notice issued by the Assessment Office. The effective date of the Board of Assessment Appeals decision will be current year.
All annual appeals must be filed on or before September 1st of each year. The decision of the Board of Assessment Appeals is effective in the subsequent tax year.
