If the assessed value of a property increased, by law, the Assessor's office is to mail a Change of Assessment Notice to the property owner. These notices are mailed out March 1st and the property owner has 30 calendar days from the date on the notice to file a protest. You also have 30 extended days to apply for homestead, additional homestead and the senior valuation freeze, if applicable. If the value of the property stayed the same or went down, a notice will not be mailed to the property owner.
