Appeals

With assessments done on a mass appraisal basis, there may be times when a property falls either higher or lower than the median for the neighborhood. The appeals process is a right given to all property owners to contest their property values. Only when directed by the taxpayers are we able to review property assessments on a property-by-property basis. It is extremely important that any and all assessment errors are corrected through the appeal process, therefore creating more accurate assessments for the future. The staff of the Wayne Township Assessor's Office encourages anyone who questions their assessment to file an appeal. For further information regarding appeals, please visit the Allen County Assessor's Appeals Page.

An appeal form (130) is now required to open an appeal. The appeal form must be signed and filed with the County Assessor or postmarked no later than June 15th. If you have questions about the appeal process or would like a blank form mailed to you, contact our office at 260-449-7173.

PLEASE NOTE: The petition must be signed by the petitioner or an authorized representative. A representative must attach a notarized Power of Attorney (PDF) unless the representative is a duly authorized employee or corporate officer of the company. Certified tax representatives must attach a Tax Representative Disclosure statement. If you have an email address that we can contact you at, please list it on the appeal form.
