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. Complainants may also research the Auditor's appraisal of their property in the Auditor's Office or via AREIS ONLINE (Auditors Real Estate Information System). Homeowners with questions about their property values may contact the Auditor's Education and Outreach Department at (419) 213-4406.

What if I am not satisfied with the decision I was given?
If you are not satisfied with the Board of Revision's decision, you may appeal your case to the State of Ohio Board of Tax Appeals or the Lucas County Common Pleas Court.
