Viewing Issue B

There is a problem with my property or it is in poor condition.

Are the costs of repairs (or problem with your property) large compared with your total assessment?

See example

Keep in mind:

Usually, we will not reduce your assessment if the repair costs are small (less than 5% of your total assessment).


Your assessment is an estimate of your property's market value.  Therefore, we cannot say that your property is worth one precise figure.  It could be worth a little less or a little more than your assessment.

For this reason, we will usually not make a change in your assessment for a small amount of repairs.

Think about the potential benefit of appealing:

  • Possible savings in property tax may be less than your time and expense to participate in the appeal steps;

  • This cost-benefit decision is completely yours.
