What should I prepare for a telephone hearing?

Since the phone hearings can move quickly, it is best that you prepare and submit your information in advance.  Any information that supports your opinion is helpful.  Common examples include:

  1. A recent appraisal (within 12 months)
  2. Evidence of a recent sale of the property
  3. Recent sales of similar properties in the area
  4. Photos of the property’s physical condition
  5. Income, vacancy and expense data (for commercial or investment property)
  6. Discounted Cash flow data (for development land)
  7. FSA maps or other data showing different land use or soil types (Agricultural land)

The information can be uploaded to your assigned appeal after logging into the Online Appeal site, and clicking the “Manage Documents” link .
