How will I know if my property value changes?
Counties must mail a property tax assessment notice to all property owners whose property’s fair market value increases by $1,000 or more. An assessment notice must be sent to the person listed as property owner as of December 31 of the prior year.

The assessment notice is NOT a tax bill. The notice is simply to notify taxpayers of a change in their property’s value.

Tax bills are usually mailed in September/October and must be paid by January 15.

The assessment notice includes your market value, the new assessment value, the assessment ratio, number of acres or lots, location of property, tax map number and the appeals procedure.
