Every taxpayer has the right to file an application for abatement on the value of their house. An application for abatement is a request for the office to review the value of a property. The taxpayer must file this application between the date when the bills are first mailed (e.g. October 1st) and the date the 1st half tax is due (e.g. November 1st). The Assessor will fully inspect your property and then review the value which was committed. If the property is determined to be over-valued, the second half tax amount will be adjusted. The Assessors have 3 months from the date of filing in which to act on your application.
