Valuation notices will be issued in November, at which time there is a short window of opportunity to informally discuss your values with the revaluation company. Our Connecticut expert, Paul Steimle, has had a great amount of success utilizing this proactive approach to value reduction on behalf of our Clients. Otherwise, the formal deadline to file an appeal on your value is 2/20/2012.
