Burden of Proof
The burden of proof that a property owner has been wrongfully assessed lies with the Property Owner and not with the Assessor. Unless proven inaccurate, the assessment made by the Assessor stands.
Appeal Property Taxes
The Equalization Board will not discuss any properties by phone. You may schedule a hearing (see procedure below) to meet with them in person.
The Equalization Board will respond to a letter of appeal and make a decision based on information available to them. Any petition or letter for adjustment must be made; and/or, mailed before the third Monday in August.

Note: Since the income method is the best approach for determining value of income producing properties, it will be necessary for AR CAMA Technology to have that information (if it is to be used) at least ten (10) business days prior to your scheduled hearing. Otherwise the assessment will be made using averages of similar properties to assist them in arriving at fair value for assessment purposes.
