April 30 DEADLINE to appeal 2013 Property Tax Classification or Valuation

Anyone considering appealing their property tax classification or valuation for assessment year 2013 for taxes payable in 2014 is reminded that the deadline to file a petition in tax court is April 30 of the year taxes are payable.

Also, a reminder to all those who have pending property tax petitions for assessment year 2012 or prior:  you must file a new petition every year to maintain the tax court's jurisdiction to make changes to your classification or valuation.  A petition appealing classification or valuation only applies to the assessment year of that particular petition.  It can take years to get a decision from the tax court.  In the meantime, you've got to keep filing a new petition for each assessment year.

Please call with any questions about your individual situation, and have a great year in 2014!
