Complaints filed late or without the required fee are invalid. The Board must dismiss these complaints.

You may not need to file a complaint if you speak to a City assessor first. The assessor can explain your assessment and correct any errors. If the assessor finds your assessment is not accurate, they can issue a new assessment.
