1. Learn about this resource.
Residents have the right to request that we—the DC Government—take another look at their property value assessment. Every year we conduct assessments to update our estimate of every home’s market value as of January 1. This value is used to calculate how much is owed in property tax on that home. After we conduct the assessments, we mail Notices of Assessment in February, but you can always access the current assessment at My Tax DC. If you disagree with the property value assessment, you can request an appeal.
This process is called the Real Property Assessment and Appeals Process and is run by the DC Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR).
2. Check if you are eligible.
You are eligible if you are responsible for paying the property taxes on a DC property. You do not need to live in DC to appeal the property value assessment. The property could be a residential property, business, nonprofit, or religious institution.

4. Gather more information.
What happens after I apply?
Your meeting with the assessor will be about 15 minutes. During that time, you’ll explain your reasoning for appealing and talk through your supporting documents. You have the option not to meet with your assessor and instead, they will make their decision based on the documents you submit.
Within about 10 business days from your meeting/submission, the assessor will mail a Decision Notice with their conclusion. Depending on the volume of appeals you should receive a Decision Notice no later than August 1 (postmarked by).
Your new property value assessment will be reflected in your September bill.
Are there any additional requirements I should know about?
No. Filing the appeal on time is most important.
Who should I contact if I have questions?
