The San Miguel County assessor’s office saw a big increase in the number of tax protests this year.
Residents and businesses were required to file their protests to assessed property values in June.
This year, the county received 324 protests, Assessor Elaine Estrada said. One of the reasons for the spike, she said, was that the assessor’s office conducted the first mass appraisal of commercial properties and vacant land since 1998, Estrada said. As a result, many saw increases in their property values, which could well mean hikes in tax bills.
