2018 Real Estate Informal Request Appeal Form

IMPORTANT NOTICE PREPAY TAXES

“The county’s acceptance of a prepayment for 2018 property taxes does not guarantee that this payment will be deductible for purposes of the taxpayer’s 2017 federal income tax return. Taxpayers are urged to seek advice from a legal or financial professional for questions about federal income tax deductions. The county would not be permitted to make a refund of a prepayment due to the taxpayer’s subsequent inability to deduct the payment for their 2017 federal income taxes.”
