Abatements may only be filed on the actual tax bill that was mailed on or about December 31st and must be timely filed in the assessor's office. This is usually February 1st or 30 days after the actual bill was mailed.
These deadlines cannot be extended by law and if your application is not timely filed, you will lose all rights to an abatement. Timely filing an abatement does not stay the collection of your taxes. Your tax bill is still due and must be paid on time. The Assessors have three (3) months from the date of your application to render a decision.
