As a property owner, what are my responsibilities?
It is up to each individual property owner to monitor their own assessments(s). A taxpayer who feels he/she is not being fairly assessed should meet with the Assessor before the tentative assessment roll is established on May 1st. First, the taxpayer needs to call the Assessor's office to schedule an appointment, then in an informal setting, the Assessor can explain how the assessment was determined, the rationale behind it and answer any questions the taxpayer may have.
