Don’t forget that the Eagle County Assessor will be sending out new property values on May 1, 2011. I understand the new appraisals will also be available online on May 2 at the Assessor website shown below:
The new valuations are based on property values as of June 30, 2010. The Assessor has stated that overall property values in the Valley have decreased an average of 30% from the last appraisals. Remember though that the actual percentage change will vary from neighborhood to neighborhood.
It is my understanding that if you want to protest your assessed valuation, you have until May 31, 2011 to file the initial appeal with the Assessor’s Office. Most private appraisers in the Valley offer tax appeal services if you would like to appeal your valuation.
Contact me and I can give you some names of local appraisers that can help with an appeal.
