A: Yes. Appeals of supplemental assessments must be filed with the Assessment Appeals Board within 60 days of the mailing date shown on the bill.

If you choose to appeal your assessment, you must still pay your tax installments on any existing bills in full by the appropriate deadlines. Otherwise, you may incur penalties while the case is in the appeals process.
