What is the process after I file an abatement?

The Board of Assessors will review your property record card, compare it to sales of similar property and analyze your street and your neighborhood to determine whether or not to grant an abatement. The Assessors may also request written information that is relevant to the valuation of the property. To preserve your right to appeal an abatement decision, you must provide all information requested by the Board of Assessors. Failure to respond to an information request within 30 days of the request will result in a denial of the application and may bar an appeal to the Appellate Tax Board.
