Do I have to let the assessors into my home?

You do not need to let the assessors in. We respect your privacy. We also understand that our visit may be "not a good time."

If you do not allow entry into the home, we are forced to estimate your interior information. We do not necessarily estimate that you have had major renovations done, but we do have to make a judgment call on the condition of your property. Our goal again is to make sure all assessed values are fair.

Note: if you refuse to allow entry to your home, any formal appeals will be denied.
