Zillow Advice: Housing Market - how do I determine property value as of january 1 for property tax appeals? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-I-determine-property-value-as-of-january-1-for-property-tax-appeals/421098/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Different assessors handle ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-I-determine-property-value-as-of-january-1-for-property-tax-appeals/421098/ Different assessors handle it different ways, but usually you need to look for similar houses that sold during the appeal period set down by the assessor. Many offices I have seen use sold comps between Jan 1 and March 1. Other offices allow sales to be referenced on appeals that sold anytime during the past year. Ask your assessor how they handle it in your area.
