Protest of Value
Every tax payer has the right to protest the value placed on his or her property. To
do this you must contact our office within 30 of receipt of your Notice of Value (NOV).
The NoV is normally mailed in February or March of each year and must be mailed by April
Forms will be provided on which you must indicate the value ,you think should be
placed on your property. An informal hearing will then be scheduled at which we will show
you how we arrived at the valuation for your property.
If you still believe that the value of your property is too high you will be
scheduled for a formal hearing before the County Valuation Protest Board comprised of
three voting members appointed as follows:
1. one member shall be a qualified elector of the county and shall be appointed by the
county commission for a term of two years;
2. one member shall be a qualified elector of the county, shall have demonstrated
experience in the field of valuation of property and shall be appointed by the county
commission for a term of two years; and
3. one member shall be a property appraisal officer employed by the department (PTD),
assigned by the director and shall be chairmen of the board."
If you disagree with the finding of the protest board you may file with the court of
appeals a notice of appeal.
