Iíve just refinanced my home and the appraisal used by the bank indicates a lower value than my assessed value.

Can I use this as evidence to lower my assessment?

It depends on the reason(s) why there is a difference of
value. If the refinancing appraisal is lower because
the property information used by your assessor is
inaccurate then yes. You should ask your assessor to
visit your property, perform an on-site inspection to
verify the inaccuracies, and determine a new value based
upon the newly attained description. If your refinancing
appraisal is lower because it represents sales evidence
from the past 90 days and if your assessment was determined
a number of years ago from the last revaluaiotn, then
probably not. Making changes to assessed values because
of economic conditions are done in the context of a
municipal-wide revaluation so thatall property values
are adjusted to current market levels and every property
owner is treated in a similar manner. This creates and
ensures property tax equity and uniformity throughout
your entire municipality.
