What do I do if I disagree with the assessed value?
A property owner has the right to appeal their property tax assessment. The burden of proof, however, will be on the taxpayer to prove why they should have their assessment changed. Just saying: "My taxes are too high" is not sufficient. You may appeal by either submitting a written appeal or by scheduling a face-to-face hearing.

The following may happen on appeal:
- The assessed value may be raised;
- It may be lowered
- It may remain the same

Any appeals that are not resolved by the Reassessment Office may be reviewed by the Board of Equalization.

The final appeal after the Board of Equalization would be to petition the City of Radford Circuit Court for judicial review. The Code of Virginia provides all property owners the opportunity to appeal an unfair reassessment through the Circuit Court system.
