The scheduling of your hearing will depend on the volume of appeals and the timing of your petition filing. An assessor’s representative will review your petition and may contact you at your daytime phone number. Also, you may initiate contact with the assessor’s representative at the number listed on your “Assessor’s Notice of Real Property Value Change” form.
If you are able to reach agreement on the true and fair value of the property, you will be offered a Stipulated Agreement form to sign that establishes the new value and withdraws the petition. In this case, you will not have a board hearing. However, if you cannot come to an agreement with the assessor’s representative, then you will be scheduled for a board hearing. You will be notified by mail of your hearing date approximately 60 days in advance. The time between filing your appeal and the scheduled hearing may take between 6 and 18 months.
