You must complete the Board of Equalization (BOE) application
explaining why you believe your assessment is incorrect, and you
must include supporting documentation. Follow these guidelines
to submit your appeal.

Appeal applications, including all written evidence, must be
delivered to the BOE or postmarked by May 1. If the filing
deadline falls on a Saturday,  Sunday or holiday, the deadline
is the following business day.

FOR INCOME PRODUCING PROPERTIES, A COMPLETED COPY OF THE CITY OF MANASSAS ANNUAL INCOME/EXPENSE SURVEY FOR THE CALENDAR YEARS 2019 AND 2020, ALONG WITH THE APPLICABLE RENT ROLLS MUST BE INCLUDED WITH THE APPLICATION.   

All parts of the appeal must be neatly typed and submitted to the BOE as an original plus four copies.

  • No additional evidence will be accepted at the public hearing
  • If the taxpayer, or in the case of corporations, etc, the officer, is not preparing and will not be present during the appeal, an original letter of authorization, duly notarized, must be included in the appeal package
  • The Board of Equalization is a body appointed by the circuit court. It is completely independent of the City of Manassas Commissioner of Revenue Real Estate Assessments division. As such, letters of authorization (L.O.A.) are not transferable between the two parties. The board requires its own original L.O.A. faxes, facsimiles, and emails are not acceptable on the original filing, but are acceptable for the board’s required additional copies of the original submission
Note: Incomplete applications will be returned to the sender and the May 1 deadline will not be extended.
