What are your rights and responsibilities?

If your opinion of the value of the property differs from the assessor’s by all means go to the assessor’s office and discuss the matter. The assessor will be glad to answer questions about the appraisal and explain how to appeal if you cannot come to an agreement. The assessor's office relies on the property owner for information. You can help by providing accurate information. If you feel taxes are too high, you should make your opinion known to the elected officials. Ask about your eligibility for special exemptions.
