Protest forms are available in the Treasurer’s Office or can be downloaded in PDF format.
Tax Protest Forms must be completed and submitted to the Treasurer’s Office by December 20th, either with the payment or having at least first half tax being paid by December 20th. After that deadline, any protest must be filed at the time taxes are paid (if an escrow agent pays the taxes in full by December 20th, the form must be filed by January 31st). The form must be signed. Missing signatures may delay and possibly even void the filing of the protest.
A Declaration of Representation form is required if someone is acting on behalf of the owner of record in these proceedings.
Upon receipt of the completed form(s) the Linn County Appraiser’s Office will contact the owner / representative to schedule an informal hearing.
