Board of Review August Agenda 08 22 17

A Board of Review meets annually at any time during the 30 day period beginning on the 2nd Monday of May. Normally because the assessment roll has not been completed because of the climate and conditions in the North Woods of Wisconsin, the board will meet and adjourn to such a time that the assessment roll can be completed. Notices of the adjourned Board of Review will be posted in the 3 official locations in the town and also on the town website.

The first required step in objecting to an assessment after receiving a notice from the assessor, is to contact the assessor. Do it right away so any issue can be investigated, inspected on site and possibly resolved without going any further.

What is considered “filing of the objection form” with the BOR clerk? First, a property owner must provide the BOR clerk with a written or oral notice of intent to file an objection at least 48 hours before the first scheduled meeting. He or she must then fill out a written objection form (Form PA-115A-Objection Form for Real Property Assessment or Form PA-115B-Objection Form for Personal Property Assessment). This written objection is considered filed if the BOR clerk’s office receives it within the first two hours of the first BOR meeting.

If the property owner did not provide a 48-hour notice of intent to object, he or she must submit the written objection form and request a waiver (of the notice of intent to file requirement) during the first two hours of the BOR’s first meeting.

As a property owner, is there a specific form I should complete to provide my notice of intent to file an objection? No. You must give the BOR clerk either a written or oral notice of intent. There is no specific form for your notice. The Wisconsin Department of Revenue encourages you to submit a written notice. We also recommend that the clerk’s office maintain a log of telephone calls it receives which are notices of intention to file objections. When it’s receiving your verbal notice of intent, a municipality could encourage you to complete the official objection form (Form PA-115A-Objection Form for Real Property Assessment or Form PA-115B-Objection Form for Personal Property Assessment) 48 hours before the first meeting, which would also serves as notice of intent.
