Please note that each City or Town may proceed with this process in a different manner. The following is a typical scenario. If any property-owner believes the assessment on their property is in excess of its fair market value they should first notify the assessor’s office. They may then appeal before the municipality's board of assessment appeals. The board of assessment appeals will review the case and make a determination as to the disposition of the appeal. Should the property-owner still feel the assessment is incorrect, they may appeal to the superior court for the judicial district in which the municipality is located. All appeals typically have time deadlines. Always contact your local Town Hall with any questions pertaining to the filing dates for appeals.
