The 2017 Reassessment Notices were mailed on January 31, 2017. If you have questions or concerns about your 2017 Real Estate Assessment, please contact our office at 434-296-5856.
The initial deadlines to file for a review or appeal to the Board of Equalization (BOE) have passed. However, if you have already requested a review through our office, you will have 30 days from the date of our letter responding to your appeal to submit a BOE application as stipulated in County Code Sec. 15-1002(A).
Because we must be able to track all applications, the BOE appeal form is not available on this website.
To request an appeal form please contact our office:
- by phone at 434-296-5856,
- by email to ASHATZ@albemarle.org or firstname.lastname@example.org,
- by fax at 434-296-5801,
- or in person at our office.
Please note, the form must be returned or postmarked by 30 days from the date of review response letter. Requesting the appeal application is not considered having met the deadline.
Each of the elected members of the Board of Supervisors appoints a BOE member to represent each of the six magisterial districts. The BOE holds hearings whereby property owners or their representatives can explain why they believe the current year assessment is incorrect. The County Assessor also explains to the BOE how assessments are determined. The BOE members then decide to either affirm the assessment, or to change it.
GIS-Web Assessment Information:
The 2017 Real Estate Assessments values are viewable on the County's GIS-Web site. Changes to specific property information have not been updated in GIS since the 2016 reassessment. Our GIS department is currently working to update this information. If you have questions about your property description, contact our office at 434-296-5856.
There are several search options to choose from on the GIS-Web page. This includes owner name, parcel ID, and street address. Once you have selected the parcel of interest, you will see a Property Info tab on the page that opens. Click on this tab for property-specific information such as assessment history.
There is also an Advanced Search option to search property records by a broader set of criteria. Interested in seeing the selected parcel on a map? Click on the Map Property link once you have selected the parcel. There are Help and FAQ pages to assist you, should you need it.
