Property Valuation Protest Deadline Nears
Property owners wanting to protest the valuation used to determine their property tax have until June 30th to do so. Lancaster County Clerk Dan Nolte explained that valuation protests related to Lancaster County properties can be filed online at www.lancaster.ne.gov (keyword: protest), by mail or in person. The Lancaster County Clerk's Office is located at 555 S. 10th Street, Room 108, Lincoln, NE 68508. Property valuation protests for properties located outside of Lancaster County must be filed with the respective County Clerk.
When filing a protest in Lancaster County, citizens then have the option of meeting with an independent appraiser referee to present information that may assist the referee in determining value. Referee hearings are scheduled to begin June 29 and conclude by July 12. Evening and Saturday hearing times are once again available.
Nolte encouraged anyone concerned with their valuation to file a protest. "This is an avenue that is available to property owners to have an independent appraiser review their value if they feel the County has set it too high or too low," said Nolte.
For more information on filing a property valuation protest or to obtain a protest form, please contact the Lancaster County Clerk's Office at 402-441-8724.
