Board of Appeal and Equalization

 Why do board members need to be trained?  

  • Under state law, each Board of Appeal and Equalization meeting must include a voting member who has completed a Department of Revenue training course within the last four years. Each board must also certify by February 1 that the board has a trained member.

​Requirement

​If LBAE does not meet requirement

​If CBAE does not meet requirement

Certify trained member by February 1

The board's powers are transferred to the county for the current assessment year

​The boards's powers are transferred to a special board for the current assessment year

​Trained member not present at the board of appeal meeting

Meeting is turned over to the county and becomes an open book meeting. The board's powers are transfered for the following assessment year as well.

Meeting is adjourned immediately and all taxpayers who would have appealed can appeal to the Commissioner of Revenue before August 1. A fee of $500 per tax parcel that is appealed will be assessed to the county
