There will be no in person informal interviews this year. In order to keep a constant flow throughout the process, it is imperative that supporting documentation you would like reviewed is submitted with your appeal. Supporting documentation could include recent appraisals, information regarding recent comparable sales, income and expense information for commercial properties, photographs, surveys, etc.
After your appeal is received, a County appraiser will contact you by phone or email. The appraiser will review any supporting documentation submitted with your appeal and will be prepared to discuss the specifics of your appeal with you. After the information you provided has been reviewed and discussed, the appraiser and property owner will either agree on a final valuation or the appeal will be forwarded to the Board of Equalization.
We will make several attempts to contact you and ask that you respond to calls or emails concerning your appeal in a timely manner. If we are unable to reach you, your appeal will automatically be forwarded to the Board of Equalization.
Board of Equalization hearings are held at the Revenue Commission office in Bay Minette from June through September 2021. We will mail appointment letters stating the date and time of your hearing with the Board of Equalization.
