How can I prove to the Tribunal that my property assessment is excessive?

Because the Tribunal is an administrative court and must be impartial and fair, we cannot give you legal advice or tell you how to prepare your evidence or comment on your evidence.

The law indicates that the petitioner has the burden of establishing the property's true cash value as of the relevant tax date (December 31, 2014, for the 2015 tax year). True cash value or fair market value means the price a willing buyer will pay and a willing seller will accept in an independent sale.

NOTE: Please do not send original documents as the Tribunal is required to maintain a complete case file and cannot return documents submitted into evidence.
