Allen County Property Tax Assessment
Board of Appeals (PTABOA)

A taxpayer has the right to initiate an appeal of the current year's assessed valuation. The first step in the appeals process begins with written notification to the local assessing official. Taxpayers have 45 days from the date of the notice of assessment to initiate an appeal. If no notice of assessment is given, the notice of appeal must be filed not later than the later of May 10 of the tax bill year or 45 days after the date of the tax bill.

Please note: Effective July 1, 2017, all appeals need to be filed on the Form 130 (listed below), and each parcel that is appealed needs to have its own petition filed.
