DR-486 - Petition to Value Adjustment Board

If you think that the market value noted is incorrect or if you think that you have evidence that the value exceeds the actual fair market value of your property, you are encouraged to contact the Property Appraiser's Office to speak with an appraiser. The appraiser can discuss the information, which was used to determine your property's value and welcomes the opportunity to review all pertinent facts regarding your property. The Property Appraiser does not control property values. They are determined by the rise and fall of the real estate market and are determined by the buyers and sellers.

If after meeting with an appraiser and examining all of the relevant data, you still think that your market value is higher than it should be, then you have a right to file a petition with the Value Adjustment Board (VAB). A VAB petition must be filed on or before the indicated deadline to have your assessment considered.
