Appeal Procedures require that the property owner submit two things with their appeal: a BE01- Appeal Form and evidence that supports the opinion of value.
Your valuation or assessed value is made by the Assessor's Office and for most properties within Salt Lake County, are generated by a computer assisted mass appraisal [CAMA] system for most residences.
You can only appeal the total market value for the current year. You cannot appeal just the value of the land or just the value of the improvements (house or other buildings). Please note that the "Board" cannot review or adjust the taxes you pay. The Board only adjusts the valuation of the property.
