Your request for review is not a basis to lodge a complaint about higher taxes. Tax Rates are set by Lynchburg City Council. Questions about tax rates may be directed to the City Council and/or your Ward representative.
There are 3 reasons the Assessor's Office can address regarding incorrect assessed values:
- There are factual errors on your property record card. Examples could include finished square footage, bath counts, lot size, etc.
- Your property is valued for more than market value. You can provide examples of specific properties that are sold that indicate your property is above market value.
- Your property value is correct, but it is valued for more than similar properties or not equalized with similar properties. You can provide comparable properties to show this inequity.
