APPEALING PROPERTY VALUATION
Please print and complete the Valuation and Review Form. Please see the instructions below.
Print your name, address, phone number and parcel number (PIN) to assist in identifying your property.
This section should be completed only if you can provide proper documentation from the appropriate jurisdiction to verify that your property value should be reduced because it is either a non-buildable lot or a lot that will not pass a septic soil analysis test for a sewage disposal system.
Explain the concerns you have about the value of your property. Provide information that explains why the valuation you received does not represent the true market value. The more information you can provide and the more thorough and specific the explanation, the better we will be able to determine if we can make an adjustment in the value.
Indicate what you believe the true market value should be (the value the property would sell for on the open market) and what you base your opinion on. If you know of any comparable sales, or have a fee or bank appraisal, etc., please complete the blanks for the information requested and attach any appraisals. (Please include the full appraisal.)
Complete this section if you acquired the property within the last six to twelve months. Indicate whether the sale was for vacant land or land and building, the sale amount, type of sale, and description of property, etc.
Complete this section if you know of any properties comparable to your properties that have recently been sold. Also keep in mind that the effective date of your appeal is January 1, 2009. Sales of comparable properties occuring after January 1, 2009 cannot be considered.
