York County VA Reassessments 2012

imageThe York County Virginia Real Estate Assessment office is nearing the end of the 2012 reassessment process. Property owners will start to receive their reassessment  notices the last week of December 2011.
“Most property owners will see a decrease in the assessed value of their residential and commercial properties,” said Real Estate Assessor Rick Millman. “However it must be stated that not every property will be reduced, and that values change at different rates depending upon location, price range and amenities. We are in the final stages of the reassessment process and preliminary analysis indicates that the total taxable value will likely decrease by about three percent.”

Included in your assessment notice will be important information about the assessment as well as instructions on how to file an appeal if you believe your property is assessed above or below its market value, or is not assessed uniformly with similar real estate. You may contact the Real Estate Assessment Office at (757) 890-3720 upon receipt of the notice, but before the final date listed on the notice for “Administrative Real Estate Assessment Hearings.”
“This is a very open process and we want it to be clear that property owners can ask questions and request additional information at any time,” said Millman.
There is no fee or cost to the property owner for reviewing the assessment with the appraisal staff.

If you are not in agreement with the appraiser’s decision on the assessment of your property, you may appeal to the Board of Equalization (BOE). An application is required; filing information and the deadline date will be on the notice. BOE meeting dates are also stated on the notice. There is no fee to apply to be heard by the BOE. You may appeal to the BOE even if you have not made an informal appeal directly to the Assessor’s Office.

If a property owner is still dissatisfied with the decision of the BOE, you can at your own expense, file an appeal to the Circuit Court.
Millman also noted that “a property owner may choose to take their case directly to the Circuit Court without going through the administrative hearing or BOE.”
The judge will have the final say in the assessment.

For more information, call (757) 890-3720, Monday through Friday, from 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. and or visit the county website www.yorkcounty.gov/realestateassessment
