What if I still do not agree with the aircraft value after an Assessor’s Informal Review?

You can file an Assessment Appeal Application (PDF) with the Assessment Appeals Board online or by calling 530-889-4020. In order to appeal an assessment, you must file an Assessment Appeal Application with the Clerk of the Board, between July 2 and September 15 (or the next business day if September 15 falls on a weekend or holiday).

Should your value notice be the result of an escape assessment, you have 60 days from the date of the Notice of Enrollment of Escape Assessment to file an Assessment Appeal Application.
