BOARD OF EQUALIZATION
All property owners are encouraged to review their assessment notices and contact the Assessing Department about errors, omissions, or inequities. If an understanding cannot be reached, you may appeal to the Board of Equalization, by submitting a FNSB Notice of Appeal form, completed as required and filed no later than 5 PM, March 3, 2021. The first scheduled hearing of the Board of Equalization will convene at 6 PM on April 9, 2021, in the Borough Assembly Chambers; this meeting may be held online due to Covid-19 concerns.
RESIDENTIAL-HOMEOWNER PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTION APPLICATION
The bottom half of the Assessment Notice is the Residential Property Tax Exemption application.
Qualified homeowners can receive an exemption equal to $50,000 of the assessed value for property within the Fairbanks North Star Borough, including the City of North Pole, with a maximum of $10,000 applied to service area assessments.
Qualified homeowners in the City of Fairbanks can receive an exemption equal to 20% of the assessed value, up to a maximum of $20,000, with a maximum of $10,000 applied to service area assessments. To receive the exemption, you must meet the criteria listed on the back of the form and return it to the Assessing Department no later than March 31, 2021. Also, please be sure to review the exemption block in the lower left-hand corner of the exemption application to see what exemptions you are already receiving. If the block lists an exemption, such as Residential-Homeowner or Senior Citizen, for example, you are already receiving the exemption and you do not need to reapply.
If you have any questions concerning the assessed value of your property or how to apply for an exemption, please contact the ASSESSING DEPARTMENT:
