Property tax appeals
How to file a property tax appeal
In most cases, appeal your property value by filing a petition with the
Board of Property Tax Appeals (BOPTA) clerks in the county where the property is located. This must be done after you receive your tax statement, but before December 31, or the next business day if December 31 falls on a weekend or holiday. You can also appeal the penalty assessed for late filing a personal property return or real property return to the board during the same time period. Board of Property Tax Appeals petition forms are available from your county clerk or their website.
If you disagree with the Board of Property Tax Appeals' decision and the issue is the value of your property, you can appeal to the Magistrate Division of the Oregon Tax Court. You must file your complaint with the court within 30 days of the date the board's order is mailed or delivered to you at the hearing. Contact the Magistrate Division for more information. BoPTA decisions regarding late-filing penalties cannot be appealed.

Properties appraised by the Department of Revenue
To appeal the value of industrial property appraised by us, file your appeal with the Magistrate Division of the Oregon Tax Court. The deadline to file an appeal is December 31, or the next business day if December 31 falls on a weekend or holiday.
The penalty assessed for late filing a combined industrial property return must be appealed to the Board of Property Tax Appeals.
The property value and late filing penalties for utilities and other centrally assessed property must be appealed to us on or before June 15 of the assessment year.
Other property tax appeals
If you disagree with an exemption denial, disqualification from special assessment, an omitted property assessment, or another non-value issue, you need to appeal to the Magistrate Division. Appeals must be made within 90 days of the action.
If you miss a regular appeal deadline, you can still appeal to the Magistrate Division if there is good and sufficient cause for not appealing on time. The court may also be able to consider a late appeal for residential property if there is a 20-percent or greater value error. See How to Appeal Your Property Value for more information about appeals to county boards or to the tax court. See Property Tax Appeals Matrix for a quick reference of where and when to appeal an assessment issue.
