Assessed value appeal dates extended

Iowa Assessors recently mailed assessment rolls to any property owner who had changes to their 2020 assessed valuations. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, an official state order gives property owners who disagree with property values additional time to petition their local board of review. The deadline to file an assessment appeal has been extended until June 5th. The regular appeal deadline is April 30th.
