Board of Review

A Board of Review is not the assessor and the assessor is not the Board of Review. Every citizen who appears before the Board of Review is in fact challenging a decision of the assessor and it is the Board of Review’s responsibility to make an independent judgment based on the facts and on law.*

Authorities and Responsibilities:
Examines and reviews the assessment roll for the current year as prepared by the supervisor/assessor. Adds property omitted from the assessment roll. Corrects errors in names, descriptions of property, and the assessment and valuation of property. Hears taxpayer appeals. Endorses the assessment roll. **
