Pay Attention To Your Property Tax Assessment
April 8, 2013
The Sioux City Assessor's office recently sent out its Notices of Value for the 2013 valuation of Sioux City real estate. If you are dissatisfied with the 2013 valuation of your real property, Iowa law gives you a short window of time to file a protest of that valuation. All protests must be filed with the Board of Review between April 16 and May 5 (May 6 this year due to the fact that May 5 falls on a Sunday). The grounds of a tax protest are set by Iowa law, and the petition must be filed using the official form. Determining the correct grounds for protest, deciding whether to get an appraisal, and the presentation to the Board are all important matters, and it may be in your best interest to talk to an attorney before filing.
