Your Property Record File will be sent to you for your review via email after you schedule your virtual or over-the-phone meeting, OR after we receive your emailed, mailed, or dropped-off information. Please make sure you provide us with a valid email address. If you do not have access to email, hopefully you know someone who does, and he or she can assist you. If neither of these options are possible, we will send your Property Record File to you via USPS Certified Mail. It will then be your responsibility to return your information to us promptly. We will not be liable for the inability to review your information if we do not receive it in our office by the March 1 deadline.

 

What Property Owners Can Expect at their Virtual or Over-The-Phone Meeting

  1. You will have received your property record file.

  2. Your personal appraiser will explain the basis for your 2021 value.

  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.

  5. No valuation determinations will be made during your appointment.

  6. After the meeting is concluded, the appraiser will review the information and make a decision about any needed adjustment to value.

Final 2021 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.

If you are not satisfied with that value, you have the opportunity to file a formal protest with the Douglas County Board of Equalization June 1 - June 30.

NOTE: Our valuation of your property can only be as accurate as the information we have in our records.  This is an opportunity to share any information you may have.

Valuation adjustments will not be made during your appointment.
