  3. Please provide any relevant information about your property or any errors in our data which may affect your property value.

  4. State the reasons why you feel your property value is incorrect.

Final 2022 values will be posted on our website, http://www.dcassessor.org/valuation-lookup and valuation-change notices will be sent no later than June 1. Valuation-change notices will only be sent if there is a change in your property value from the preceding year.
