Your last chance to pay your property taxes without a penalty is Tuesday.

Property owners wanting to appeal their 2019 assessment must respond in full to an Assessment Request For Information, and this must be done by July 3.

The city has mailed out ARFI packages to property owners of improved non-residential and multi-family property class.

The process of collecting property related data is the first step in developing the 2019 assessment roll. Collecting data every year ensures the assessment roll reflects current market information.

Completing the ARFI is an important step of the tax assessment process and allows for equitable distribution of taxes.

The higher the ratio of responses to the ARFI the better the statistical confidence level in the resulting assessment values, the city says in a press release. It is important for property owners to participate in the assessment appeal process.

As always, property owners are encouraged to contact the assessment department directly if they have questions regarding their property assessment or if they require any assistance in completing their request for information forms.
