Will you review my property value without an appeal being filed?

Yes, appraiser field inspections are usually made between January 1st and June 30th. Reviews may be requested during this time but values will reflect the condition of the property as of the January 1st assessment date. ORS 308.204 allows the Assessor to make changes to reduce values in the fall after values have been certified on September 25th. Receipt of the fall tax statement is typically why a property owner requests a value review. Before an action can be taken, a Value Modification Review Request form needs to be filed with the Assessor explaining the reason for the review.


If the property owner is not satisfied with the Assessor’s recommendation, an appeal may be filed with the Board of Property Tax Appeals (BOPTA) by December 31st.
