What if I disagree with the assessed value of my property?
If you believe your property is over assessed, not assessed fairly in comparison to other properties, or that it is not classified correctly, you have the right to file an appeal with the Assessor’s Office. The deadline for an appeal on a motor vehicle is within 30 days of notice of valuation (RIGL 44-34-8). The deadline to file an appeal on a real estate or tangible personal property assessment is within 90 days from the date that the first quarterly payment is due (September 1). RIGL 44-5-26 states, “these deadlines cannot be extended or waived by the assessor for any reason.” If your application is not filed on time, you lose all rights to an abatement and the assessor cannot, by law, grant you one. An appeal application is filed when received by the assessor’s office.
