Soon our office will be in our hearing season for payment under protests and informal appeals!
A policy that all property owners and anyone who may be representing a property owner should be aware of is the enforcement of completely and correctly filling out a DOR. The DOR (declaration of representative) must accompany the appeal application for payment under protest and informals.
The DOR applies in situations where the property owner is not appealing their property, but having a family member, neighbor, tax representative, accountant, or so on appeal in their place.
There must be a clear indication of who is appealing on behalf of the property owner including whether the owner is an individual or an organization.
A DOR can found on our website on the General Information tab under Forms.
