Board of Revision


Property owners who do not agree with the valuation of their property may file a complaint with the Board of Revision (BOR) once every three years between January 1 and March 31. The BOR is comprised of the County Auditor, the County Treasurer, and a member of the Board of County Commissioners. Once a valuation complaint is received by the BOR, a hearing will be scheduled. Please keep in mind the BOR hears complaints about property values, not the tax dollars you pay.

What if I think the appraised value is too high?

At the hearing, you may present information such as recent appraisals or current sales data for similar properties in your neighborhood to support your complaint.

Owners may file once every three years between January 1 and March 31 on a property.
