Home prices have risen since the Great Recession.

If you think the newly-reassessed tax value of your property is too high — or too low — Montgomery County owners have until April 2 to file a formal appeal with the county.

But before the deadline, Montgomery County Auditor Karl Keith is hosting six informational workshops in February and March for property owners to learn about the Board of Revision values appeal process and what evidence to prepare for a hearing.

A 2017 triennial update showed home prices in the county climbed more than 6 percent, rebounding from historic losses. About 70 percent of the total market gains were in the southern suburbs. After factoring in new construction, Washington Twp. had the highest gains, according to a final analysis by the auditor’s office.

The office mailed out final property values released in December. The final updated values are also online at www.mcrealestate.org.

The formal appeals process with the Board of Revision is the final opportunity for community input for the Montgomery County property value update, according to the auditor's office. Property owners can file an appeal online at www.mc-bor.org.
