If you believe that the value assessed is not accurate or you feel you are entitled to an exemption or classification that is not reflected on your notice, please call or stop by one of our offices. If we cannot resolve the issue, you may file a petition for adjustment with the Value Adjustment Board (VAB). For more information about the VAB or how to file a petition, click here.
