There are two different types of appeals:

2. Interim - Appeals must be filed within 40 days of the mailing date stated on the assessment change notice.
It is important that the appeal form be completed accurately, indicating the location of the property appealed, the parcel number (the parcel number may appear as the account number on your tax bill), list any unavailable dates, include your daytime telephone number in case we have any questions, your opinion of MARKET VALUE, and the name and address to which the notice of the hearing should be mailed. Make sure you have signed the appeal form. A separate form must be used for each property and parcel number being appealed.
