File an Account to Protect your Right of Appeal

Now is the time for Rhode Island taxpayers to preserve their right of appeal for Tax Year 2021 by filing an account with the local assessor. In most jurisdictions the Tax Year 2021 tax bill will be sent out during the summer of 2021. The Tax Year 2021 tax bill has an assessing date of December 31, 2020. In most cases the filing of a valid account by January 31, of each year is a prerequisite to a valid appeal. The account must describe the property, both personal and real, claim of value of the property, and be signed under oath and notarized. Occasionally, the assessors do not send out account forms. It is incumbent upon the taxpayer to seek out a form and properly complete and file it. It is possible for a taxpayer to construct his own account form, but it must include all the required information and be signed under oath, notarized, and filed timely.
