By law, the Assessor is presumed to be correct. The burden of proof is on you, the taxpayer, to show that the Assessor's determination is incorrect. Evidence must be "clear, cogent, and convincing".
You have the right to have your appeal heard at the State level without first going through the County Board of Equalization. Fill the form out and drop it off at the County Assessor's Office.

Withdrawing your petition from the appeal process is easy. Simply fill out the form, sign it, and return it to the Board of Equalization. Once it has been received your petition will be withdrawn.
