I just received a “Valuation Notice;” how do I appeal the property value?

The Grand County Assessor establishes a value for all property located in the County. The Valuation Notice you received from the Clerk/Auditor reports this value to you. Because this value determines the eventual tax amount that will be due November 30th, it is important that the information on this Notice is accurate. If you disagree with the market value of your real property, you have the opportunity to appear before the Grand County Board of Equalization. You and an appraiser from the Assessor’s Office will be given the opportunity to present evidence to support their opinion of the property value. A second unbiased appraiser, hired by the County Council, will weigh the evidence and make a recommendation to the Council which serves as the County Board of Equalization. The deadline for appealing your property valuation is September 15th each year. More information on this process can be found on the Notice, or by contacting the Assessor’s Office (435) 259-1229.
