If you have questions regarding the values on your tax statement, the assessor's staff will be available to discuss the values with you. If you desire, an appraiser will review your appraisal with you and answer any other questions you may have.

If, after your discussion with the assessor's staff, you feel the market value shown on your tax statement is too high, we encourage you to file an appeal with the Board of Property Tax Appeals.

  • The deadline to file your petition in person with the County Clerk's Office is January 3, 2017.  If you mail your petition it must be postmarked by that same date.
  • Petition forms to file your appeal are available at the County Clerk's office and online.

If you miss the above deadline, or you disagree with a prior year's value, you may file an appeal with the Magistrate Division of the Oregon Tax Court. Appeal forms may be obtained by calling Oregon Tax Court, Magistrate Division, (503) 986-5650 or on the web.  Link located in the Web Links section below.

Certain standards must be met to have appeals to the magistrate heard. Appeal forms are available in the Assessor's Office.
