Board of Appeals & Equalization


Valued & Classified

Every piece of property is valued and classified as of January 2 each year. The Assessor's Office then sets the dates for the Boards of Review for each township and city in the County. These are generally held in April and May. The purpose for the Boards of Review is to give people an opportunity to appeal their proposed valuation or classification. In March valuation notices are sent for each parcel. 


The appeal may be in person or in writing. We strongly recommend anyone with a question or problem concerning their valuation to contact our office at 218-281-4186 prior to the meeting to discuss the situation.
