Watch for Property Tax Appeal Deadlines

The timing of property tax assessment notices and deadlines for filing assessment appeals vary by state within the U.S., and they can even vary by municipality within states.  As informed real estate professionals you own it to yourself and your clients to know when assessment notices are mailed and the deadline for filing an appeal.  Both of these important dates are just a click or phone call away via your local assessor.

Some jurisdictions in the United States and Canada have assessment appeal deadlines that start as early as November 30.  I recently learned that some California counties had a November 30, 2012, filing deadline.  However, I would assume that this deadline relates to a 2012 assessment (say with a July 1, 2012 effective date for valuation).  Perhaps some of you California real estate professionals could confirm this for us.


Also, now may be a good time to call your local assessor about next year's assessment for your property. They should be able to tell how they will consider recent sales in your neighborhood, your recent home purchase, or any new construction or alterations for your home.
