The mission of the Real Property Tax Appeals Commission (RPTAC) is to conduct fair and impartial hearings to review disputed real property tax assessments (to ensure that properties are assessed at 100 percent of market value), and to resolve claims of improper real property classifications, homestead (domicile) issues and senior eligibility issues.
The Real Property Tax Appeals Commission (RPTAC) is a newly formed agency created by the repeal of its predecessor, the Board of Real Property Assessments and Appeals (BRPAA). The Commission convened for its first day of business on July 16, 2012.
