When I get my new assessment, who do I talk to about it and possibly contest the value?

There is a process called “Open Book” in which you can schedule an appointment with Musser Appraisal Service.  The Open Book period is over and the Board of Review convened on May 22, 2019.  At this point the 2019 property assessment cannot be changed.
