Filing with the ARB
Before filing, please review the information on Filing an Appeal.
Note: Documents you submit to the Board are available to the public on request subject to limited exceptions.
Assessment Appeals (For Property Assessment Notices and Assessment Change Notices)
E-File (receive a $10 discount)
For each e-file transaction, you may submit up to 15 appeals.
If you have more than 15 appeals to submit, you can still e-file but will have to divide your submission into multiple transactions. There is no limit on the number of transactions that may be submitted.
We recommend that you have your Property Assessment Notice and your credit card with you before you begin. You must have an email account.
The E File process takes about five minutes per appeal and consists of the following steps:
- Enter your roll number and confirm the correct property is selected
- Enter your name and address.
- Enter representative information – if you have someone acting for you.
- Enter the reason for your appeal.
- Enter an additional appeal OR proceed to payment
- Pay the filing fee by debit or credit card.
- Print a copy of the appeal(s) and acknowledgement for your records
The order of these steps will vary depending on whether you start as a property owner or start as a representative. The system will guide you step by step through the process.
If you are e-filing your appeal, you may only pay by debit or credit card (MasterCard or Visa). When you pay online, your appeal is processed immediately. The ARB does not view, record, or keep your credit card information. You will receive immediate acknowledgement if your payment is processed successfully.
