To file an appeal online go to https://apps.summitcountyco.gov/AssessorProtest/ProtestInstructions.aspx. You will need to have your schedule number and the security key located on your 2021 Notice of Valuation. The Security Key must be entered exactly as it appears on the NOV as it is case sensitive. The online option allows you to provide comments and your estimate of value. The online appeal option does not allow you to provide supplemental documentation, so if you desire to provide any documentation with your appeal, which our office recommends, please instead appeal by email, mail or in-person/ballot box drop-off.
The Assessor’s Office is not able to process your appeal by phone, however we are available to answer questions regarding your property/appeal by phone during normal business hours 8AM to 5PM Monday to Friday at (970) 453-3480.

To designate an authorized agent, the owner of record must submit a document in writing to the Assessor’s Office including the agent’s name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address and the owner of record’s signature. A form for providing this written agent authorization is included on your Notice of Valuation. Agents may not use the online appeal option.
The appeal period for real property is May 1 to June 1. The appeal period for personal property is June 15 to June 30. To preserve your right to object, your appeal must be postmarked, emailed, or delivered in-person on or before the deadline. Appeals filed late are not accepted.

The Summit County Assessor’s Office will review the information and data in our records for your property and confirm that it is correct. If we are uncertain about any information or find any discrepancies, we use a variety of means to research and confirm information, which may include contacting the property owner or scheduling a physical inspection of the property. If we discover information about the property that supports a different value, either lower or higher, we will adjust the value and indicate that adjustment on the Notice of Determination. If no new information about the property is discovered, or considered relevant to the value, the Summit County Assessor’s Office cannot arbitrarily reduce the value of the property.
