Deadlines to Appeal Tax Assessments Fast Approaching

The deadline for filing an appeal with the Board of Revision of Taxes (BRT) for the recently updated property tax assessments is next Monday, October 3, 2022. The deadline to file an appeal with the Office of Property Assessment (OPA) has been extended to Friday, October 14, 2022.

New property values are available online at OPA also published a step-by-step guide in multiple languages to help owners better understand their Notice of Proposed Valuation.

Property owners who believe their valuation is incorrect have until October 3 to submit a formal appeal with BRT. Property owners can also request an informal First Level Review (FLR) with OPA, with FLR applications due October 14. Requesting a First Level Review does not preclude you from filing an appeal with the Board of Revision of Taxes. You may file both as long as you adhere to each deadline.
