The Maricopa County Assessor’s office issued its initial 2013 valuation notices in February.  If you wish to file a 2013 administrative appeal on your Maricopa County real property, you must file a petition for review no later than April 17, 2012.  (Please note that the filing deadlines in other Arizona counties are not the same as Maricopa; for example, the Pima County administrative appeal filing deadline is April 3, 2012 and the Coconino deadline is April 30, 2012.  Therefore, if you have properties in other counties please check your valuation notices to determine that county’s filing deadline.)

If you do not file an administrative appeal, you have until December 15, 2012, to file a 2013 appeal directly with the Arizona tax court.
