Assessorís Office Open Extra Hours for Tax Deadline
The deadline for paying the first trimester property taxes is next Friday, November 15th. The County Assessorís office, normally closed on Fridays, will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. to accommodate property owners.
Property owners who disagree with the values shown on their tax statement have several rights of appeal. First they may go to the Assessorís office and ask for the value to be reviewed. The Assessor asks that requests for valuation review be submitted by December 5th, as the review and associated paper work must be completed by December 31st.
If the appeal is approved the reduction will be noticed to the Tax collector. If the assessor does not approved the appeal, the owner may then appeal to the Board of Property Tax Appeals. Decisions from that board may be appealed to the Magistrate Division of the Oregon Tax Court.
