Please Read Instructions

1) You will need to know the parcel number of the property you’re searching for. You can find the parcel number on the Notification of Board Action, or you can go to http://www.dcassessor.org/valuation-lookup and type in the property’s address in the search tool.

2) Once you type in your parcel number and click search, your parcel’s “Historical Form” will appear. The Historical Form contains the following information:

  • Information on the property (i.e. address, addition name, property class, etc.).
  • Owner information (if property was recently purchased, it may still contain the former owner name).
  • Links to documentation associated with the protest.
  • If protest was filed online, a list of comparable properties submitted by the protester (if provided by protester).
  • The recommended action by the referees reviewing the protest and their reasoning for the recommended action.

3) To find the documentation associated with the parcel’s property valuation protest, click on the following links:

  • Assessor Packet – to retrieve the information provided to the referees by the Assessor/Register of Deeds’ office.
  • Scanned Reports – to retrieve the information submitted by the protestor.
  • Additional Information – to retrieve any additional evidence that may have been provided at a face-to-face meeting with a referee.
  • Notice of Board Action Taken – to retrieve a copy of the Notification of Board Action regarding the parcel’s protest.
  • Statement - to retrieve the statement describing the basis upon which the Board of Equalization's decision was made (please note: the “Statement” link is only needed for 2016 and 2017 protests). 
  • Keep in mind the Historical Form itself would be part of the documentation associated with the protest.

If you are unable to retrieve the records you are looking for, or experience any issues with the above link, please contact (402) 444-6762 for assistance.
