Information about the Board of Revision

The Board of Revision (BOR) is comprised of the County, Treasurer, Auditor, and President of the County Commissioners or their representatives, and annually hears taxpayers' complaints regarding the valuation of their real property. The Board hears complaints on residential, as well as commercial, industrial, and agricultural property. 

Prior to a Board scheduled hearing, property owners are urged to bring evidence supporting their request for a change in value, such as recent sales figures, sales contracts, or independent appraisals.
