The 2014 Property Tax Appeal Cycle is now closed but if you would still like to file an appeal you still may have a chance.
2014 Late Filed Petitions
If you have missed the 2014 filing deadlines you may still have a chance to file a petition. Extenuating circumstances must exist to show why a timely filed petition could not have been and/or was not filed. In many counties late filed petitions are a two-step process.
The first step is to file a late petition with an accompanying affidavit or extenuating circumstances form. After filing a “just cause” hearing may be scheduled to determine if there are sufficient reasons that prevented a timely filing. In some counties a special magistrate will review the affidavit and extenuating circumstances and determine if the petition can proceed. In either scenario a petition will have to be granted to continue to the “value hearing” which is the second step in the process.
