Certificates of Error

Amari & Locallo files Certificates of Error with the local Assessor’s Offices when necessary. A Certificate of Error is a document issued by the Assessor’s Office that is used to correct an error in a real estate tax bill. The taxpayer essentially asks the County to correct the incorrect tax bill retroactively. If the bill is already paid the taxpayer requests a refund.

Usually the county must have made a mistake of some sort, such as in its calculation of the property's value, incorrectly calculating or recording an improvement's square footage, or erroneously assessing a building that does not exist. Typically a Certificate of Error can be filed to request refunds for errors in tax bills from the previous three tax years.
