The number of people appealing the assessment of their property was low again this year, the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office said Friday.
As of the Sept. 16, deadline, the appraiser’s office said, 4,266 parcels petitioned to the county’s Value Adjustment Board. That’s 0.6 percent of the 635,000 parcels and 58,750 tangible personal property accounts.
In 2015, owners of 5,197 properties submitted appeals; of those, the board granted 259.
The board can agree to accept petitions after the deadline, under certain circumstances.
