Open Book & Board of Review
Property owners with questions about their assessment are encouraged to contact the Assessor’s office any time during the year and are not limited to Open Book.
Open Book simply provides a designated date and time for property owners to discuss their assessment with the Assessor. Many questions regarding assessment can be answered with a phone conversation or email.

Board of Review
If you discussed your assessment with the Assessor and do not agree with the determination, you may appeal your assessment to the Board of Review.
If you wish to appeal your assessment, you will need to file a written or oral intent to object with the City Clerk at least 48 hours before the opening of the Board of Review.
In addition, you must complete an approved objection form and file it with the Clerk of the Board of Review prior to or within the first two hours of the Board’s first scheduled meeting.

The Board of Review process operates like a court. Their function is not one of valuation, but of deciding the validity of facts presented orally before them. You or your representative may testify concerning your assessment objection. You must prove that your property is not equitably assessed when compared to the general level of assessment within your tax district.
The Property Assessment Appeal Guide (PDF) includes additional information about the appeal process.
