Can the Board of Assessment Appeals reduce a real estate assessment for which an inspection was denied by the homeowner?

While the Statute does not preclude the Board of Assessment Appeals from reducing an assessment for which an inspection has been denied, it is not recommended to maintain the goal of uniformly assessing property. Furthermore, case law has implied that the taxpayer has an obligation to cooperate with the Assessor regarding interior inspections.
