When is the deadline for filing for an abatement?
The application for an abatement must be filed on or before the due date of the first actual tax bill for the year. “Actual” refers to when the tax rate has been officially set for the fiscal year. Prior to rate setting tax bills are considered “preliminary”. Typically, this means the deadline for filing an abatement is on or before February 1st, each year.
