How to Appeal Property Taxes in Alaska
There are 165 incorporated municipalities (local governments), 19 of which are incorporated into boroughs (boroughs are a rough equivalent to counties) and the remainder are incorporated as cities. Of the 19 boroughs in Alaska, only 15 levy a property tax. Only 9 cities located outside of boroughs levy a property tax; therefore, only 24 municipalities in Alaska (either cities or boroughs) levy a property tax. To file an appeal of the Assessor’s valuation of your property you must file an appeal with the municipality.
