The filing dates for property assessment appeals begin on Thursday, March 24, 2011 and will end on Friday, April 22, 2011.
Property owners may appeal their assessments to the Board if they believe that their assessment is too high. A lawyer is not required to file an appeal on behalf of a residential property owner.
