BOARD OF EQUALIZATION

2021 Local Board of Appeal & Equalization
In light of COVID-19, our top priority is the safety of both the public and staff therefore we will be following the most current COVID-19 protocols to the best of our ability.  For the 2021 Local Board of Appeal & Equalization meetings the public will have an option for both in-person or virtual appeals.  Your Notice of Valuation & Classification received in early April gives you the date and time of your local in person meeting and below you will find the call-in information for a virtual option.  Those wishing to discuss their value or classification are strongly encouraged to call the Assessor’s Office prior to your meeting to discuss changes made and verify your property information.  At this time staff will be limiting physical on-site reviews to only those deemed necessary.
