Starting Jan. 17, 2017, and ending Feb. 10, 2017, you may call (402) 444-6734 to schedule your one-on-one informal meeting with your personal appraiser. Appointments will be scheduled on a first-call, first-serve basis.  The last day for meetings is Tuesday, February 28th. You also have the option to mail, e-mail, or drop off any information for an appraiser to review. All information must be received in our office no later than February 28.  The Assessor/Register of Deeds' office will post the final 2017 values on our website, http://www.dcassessor.org/valuation-lookup, by May 15, 2017.  If you still feel that your value is incorrect, you may file a formal protest with the Douglas County Board of Equalization between June 1, 2017, and June 30, 2017.
