Iowa Property Tax Updates

UPDATED March 2017

Narrow property tax appeal window opens in April 2017

Iowa property owners will have a narrow window to appeal their January 1, 2017, assessments – which values essentially apply to both the 2017 and 2018 tax years. Appeals to the local board of review may be filed no later than April 30, 2017.   Taxpayers may be able to achieve a reduction before the local Board of Review. If not, the Taxpayer may pursue relief before a local District Court or the Iowa Property Assessment Appeal Board.
