Taxpayer Fire Relief

 Taxpayer's claim for reduction of assessments and the abatement of taxes resulting from property affected by fire as defined in MSB 3.15.075

"Damage" means harm resulting from physical injury to property, including partial or total destruction, and a diminution in the value of improvements or land resulting from fire. "Fire" includes man-made and act-of-nature events.

This claim for reduction of assessments and for the abatement of taxes must be completed with the assessor within one hundred twenty (120) days after the date of damages due to fire as defined by MSB 3.15.075. If you disagree with the assessor's determination of value, an appeal may be filed to the Board of Equalization within thirty (30) days of the date of notice by submitting a written appeal to the board's clerk.
