Property Assessment Appeal Example

The example given is fictitious.

Actual property photographs are used, but all details and dollar amounts are fictitious so as to provide an example of differences in assessments of similar properties, thereby providing the property owner with just cause to question his or her assessments correctness. You should provide as much information as possible and point out any differences.

A special note here! If you have a recent professional appraisal, it will be recognized for determining the value of your property.

Begin by locating similar pieces of property in similar areas. They do not necessarily have to be in the same community. Take photographs. Learn as much as you can about the property. Get the address and if possible the property owners name. Even better, try to obtain the property ID number.

Next, ask the assessor to give you a copy of the Property Record Card for each of the properties. Go to the Township Assessor's Office and obtain any other helpful information from the computer. They will help you if you have a name and address or parcel ID number. Determine the Assessed Value of each.

If possible, note any differences such as size, quality of construction, considerable age difference, condition, availability of amenities, etc. Each item can affect the assessment. Compare the properties and point out why you feel that your property should be assessed differently than it is.

When you have your presentation prepared, contact your assessor and give him/her your information. If you can not agree on an adjustment, then go to the Supervisor of Assessors Office or www.willcountysoa.com to obtain an appeal application. Follow the directions and use your presentation with the Board of Review .

Here is an Example
To: Board of Review

Please note the properties comparable to mine. Each is accessed differently even though they apparently differ very little. I believe, and hope that you will agree, that my assessment should be no higher than $25,400 ($2,900 lot + $22,500 home) which is approximately equal to the other home ID # 22-33-4422-113 and land ID # 22-33-4434-107 that is most like my home and lot.

Thank you for your consideration.
