Residential Property

The Douglas County Assessor’s Office is committed to helping property owners understand their rights and the process of valuation. According to state law, the Assessor determines the actual value of residential property every two years in odd-numbered years. This is called a reappraisal.  As with any appraisal, value is established as of a specific date. For ad valorem appraisal this date is dictated by statute to be June 30th of the year preceding the reappraisal.

Appeals

Assessor Level Appeals – While there are a number of levels of appeal, a property owner must begin the process at the Assessor-level, which is filed from May 1 through June 1 each year.

County Board of Equalization – A taxpayer may choose to appeal the decision of the Assessor’s Office to the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) sitting as the County Board of Equalization (CBOE).

Abatements – The abatement process is a secondary means of filing an appeal to contest property value or classification once taxes have been billed by the County.
