Had Veena Gowda not recently refinanced her home and obtained an appraisal she might not have ever thought to contest the number Vision Appraisal came up with.
But the resident of Farm Hill Road in Orange did, and on Tuesday morning she went to Town Hall to drop off her application to get on the Board of Assessment Appeals agenda. The Vision appraisal was about $50,000 more than the appraisal for the refinance, Gowda said.
Of her decision to appeal, she said, "Why not?"
Gowda said she downloaded the Board of Assessment Appeals application from an Orange Patch article published last week that details where the town's revaluation process is, and where it will be going from here. The form is also available in the Assessor's Office.
Do you plan on appealing your assessment?
