On or before the first of March each year, the County Appraiser mails Notices of Appraised Value (NOAV) to real estate property owners. This notice provides the current year and prior year history of your property’s valuation. New this year, the Appraiser’s Office is offering a few customer-friendly options for accessing property information and filing for a residential appeal.
“We know this information is important to each Johnson County property owner,” said Paul Welcome, Johnson County Appraiser. “It’s our goal to provide fair, accurate and appropriate valuations, while providing the best possible customer service to residents.”
For residential properties, the annual NOAV shows comparable sales data on property that was used in the valuation process. This information is located about halfway down on the front of the NOAV.
A new webpage has been launched that allows residents to access our mapping and property value information in a single location . New online features are also being rolled out this year – after March 1, residential property owners will be able to view a PDF version of their NOAV and, if necessary, file an appeal online at jocogov.org/appraiser .
To appeal or not to appeal?
If you believe your property’s value is estimated fairly but the real estate property taxes are too high, an appeal of valuation may not specifically address your ultimate concern of mill levy/tax rates. To challenge the actual mill levy tax rates, it is recommended that you attend and participate in the annual public budget hearings held by the elected government jurisdictions that set tax rates. Each invites public comment. Learn more about the appeal process.
