Vehicle Services
Commissioner of the Revenue - Appealing Your Vehicle Assessment

To file an appeal, you must bring the vehicle to our office to have a tax compliance auditor examine it, and you may have to submit one or more of the following to support your claim:

  • An independent appraisal from a reputable shop or repair facility.
  • A police report for incident causing damage.
  • Description of the vehicle’s condition prior to or on January 1 of the tax year for which the assessment is being appealed.
  • List of specific conditions that make your vehicle’s value less than the loan value listed in the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) guide. (For example body damage and missing engine.) Excess mileage alone is not a sufficient reason.
  • List of the conditions that existed on or prior to January 1, and the amount that each condition contributed to the reduction of the value for that vehicle.

The Commissioner of the Revenue may require additional information to substantiate a taxpayer’s claim or appeal.  Therefore, call before visiting us so we can be sure you have the necessary paperwork.
