About Equalization and Review

The Board of Equalization and Review is composed of five members, except that the Board of Commissioners may appoint up to four additional members to serve solely during a reappraisal year. This five-person board reviews the listings and valuations assigned to property by the Assessor's Office, making whatever changes necessary to ensure that the values meet the standards established by State law. The Board hears property owner appeals concerning the value assigned by the Assessor's Office and has the authority to make adjustments, upward or downward, necessary to bring the valuation into line with the standards established by law. In performing these two general responsibilities, the Board of Equalization and Review has power to investigate, employ expert assistance, and subpoena any persons and records needed to obtain information pertinent to its inquiry.
