Although it’s too late to file an appeal against this year’s assessment (property owners have only 30 days from the date the Value Change Notice was mailed or by July 1 of the Assessment Year, whichever is later), homeowners might want to download a copy of this 86-page guide from the American Homeowner’s Association. Although its copyright is five years old, “The Homeowner’s Property Tax Reduction Kit” does a decent job of reviewing common sources of assessment errors and provides tips on building a case for you to take to the County’s Board of Equalization.
