Those prices impact property valuations.Those wishing to appeal may do so via letter or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Correspondence must include the reason for the appeal, a value and the property owner’s appeal option.Appeals can be based on denial of homestead exemption or a special use exemption, uniformity or value. The appeal options are an appeal to the board of equalization which can lead to superior court, arbitration over value or an appearance before a county hearing officer.For more information, call the tax assessors office at 770.358.5161.
