2013 Board of Review Notice
If you have already discussed your assessment with the assessor and still wish to contest your assessment, you will need to file a written or oral intent to object with Bob Anderson, at 608-849-4372 ext. 214, at least 48 hours before the opening of the Board of Review. In addition, you must complete the approved objection form and file the original with the Town prior to or within the first two hours of the Board's first scheduled meeting. Board of Review for 2013 will be held on Thursday May 30th from 8:30am until 10:30am. You must have a hearing time scheduled to be heard at the Board of Review. You will be notified of your Board of Review hearing time after filing your completed objection form. Hearing times cannot be scheduled prior to us receiving the completed objection form. Please contact Bob Anderson*, at 608-849-4372 ext. 214 if you have any questions regarding this process or view the BOR FAQs for more details.
Boards of Review operate like court proceedings. Their function is not one of valuation, but of deciding the validity of the facts presented orally before them. You or your representative may testify concerning your assessment objection. You must prove that your property is incorrectly assessed relative to its market value within your tax district. If you desire to appeal your assessment in any year, your appearance at that year's Board of Review is extremely important. Most subsequent avenues of appeal require that you first attend the Board of Review. The Town Board members are the members that sit on the Board of Review.
Please see the BOR FAQs for more details.
