DESIGNATED PROPERTY REPRESENTATIVE FORM
A property owner may designate a representative, agent or attorney to assist in the appeal of the assessment. The owner may appear in person with the representative or the representative may appear alone without the owner being present. In order to preserve the orderly conduct of the appeal hearing, a property owner should be accompanied by not more than one such representative. The form below or a similar written authorization may be used by an owner to designate a representative. However, if the representative files an appeal with the original or a copy of the assessment notice, no designation form is required. Where a representative has been designated or where the representative has entered the appeal, all further notices regarding the appeal shall only be sent to the representative. Duplicate notice will not be sent, except in such instances deemed appropriate by the Supervisor of Assessments.
