Tax value notices went out from the Revenue Commissioner’s office over the weekend to property owners whose values are increasing.
Those property owners have the right to protest the valuation before the county’s Board of Equalization. But the wrong date was put on the cards. The actual deadline to file a formal protest is August 5.
Revenue Commissioner Michael Johnson released this statement:
“Incorrect dates were printed on the Marshall County 2019 Valuation Notices.
“Despite having correct proofs, the printer mistakenly used the dates from last year’s notices.
“The last day to file a formal protest of value with the Board of Equalization is August 5, 2019.
“Fortunately, we are working with a very credible vendor which took immediate responsibility for the mistake and will be sending out corrected notices at its expense.
“Delivery of corrected notices should begin as early as this week. We regret any confusion this has created and encourage anyone with a question to come by our office or call us at 256-572-7811.”
