Board of Appeal and Equalization

Why do board members need to be trained?  

State law requires each Board of Appeal and Equalization meeting to include a voting member who has completed a Department of Revenue training course within the last four years.   

​Requirement

​If LBAE does not meet requirement

​If CBAE does not meet requirement

Have at least one trained member by February 1
Board's powers are transferred to the county for a minimum of two assessment years​. ​Board's powers are transferred to a special board for a minimum of two assessment years.
Trained member is present at board meeting


​Board meeting is turned over to county and becomes an Open Book meeting. Board's powers are also transferred to county for the next assessment year.
​Meeting is adjourned immediately and taxpayers may appeal to the Commissioner of Revenue by August 1. County is assessed a fee of $500 for each tax parcel that is appealed.

How do I take the training?

 You can take the Board of Appeal and Equalization training online. Go to the Board of Appeal and Equalization Online Training

 

Where can I see who is trained?  

To help you comply with this requirement, we keep lists of all LBAE and CBAE members who have taken the training in the last four years. We update the certification lists at the end of each month. You can use the Feel free to use the filter and sort functions to find the information you need. 

 
 
2017 law change:  LBAEs and CBAEs no longer have to provide proof to us that they have a trained member by the February 1. Instead, use the Trained Member Rosters (above) to verify if your board has a trained member by the deadline.
