County Board of Appeal and Equalization Training

At least one voting member of each County Board of Appeal and Equalization (CBAEs) must have attended an equalization training course within the last four years. Each year, the county must certify to the Department of Revenue that its board met this requirement by February 1. If the CBAE has been transferred to a Special Board of Appeal and Equalization, at least one voting member of the special board must attend the training session.

  

Catch-up Training Sessions for Board Members

The Department of Revenue offered six catch-up Board of Appeal and Equalization (BAE) training sessions in the month of March. The Catch-up courses for 2015 are no longer available. The next catch-up training will be available in the spring of 2016, via the online training. Please check back for more information at that time.
 

Board of Appeal and Equalization Online Training

Historically, the Board of Appeal and Equalization training has been offered in-person, in a classroom setting, by a Department of Revenue employee. However, starting in July of 2015 we will be launching a computer-based training program so that board members can take the training online at their own pace.

Attendance Lists

To help you comply with this requirement, listings of all CBAE members who have attended the training in the last four years are posted below. We will update the certification lists regularly as we offer more training courses.

The CBAE will be in compliance with the training requirement if:

  • At least one of the people named on the certification list is in attendance at your CBAE; and
  • That person is a voting member.

If the CBAE does not meet this requirement, or does not have a quorum present, the county must:

  •  Adjourn the meeting, no appeals or actions can be heard
  • Appoint a Special Board of Appeal and Equalization for the next year’s assessment; and
  • Prove compliance with the training requirement and pass an official resolution before reinstating its CBAE for subsequent years.

NOTE: If a County Board of Appeal and Equalization or Special Board of Equalization fails to satisfy the training and quorum requirements, then:

  • Owners and taxpayers who could have appealed to that board can appeal to the Commissioner of Revenue before Aug. 1;
  • By Oct. 1, the county will be charged a fee of $500 for each tax parcel that was appealed to the commissioner; and
  • The county must pay the commissioner by Dec. 1.  Otherwise, the unpaid amount will be deducted from any state aid the county would receive in the next year. (The commissioner may decide to accept late payments.)
