The taxpayer will be notified of the date and time of the hearing.


Any forms that are NOT properly completed or any form that is omitted

that is required to be submitted may cause that particular appeal to be

dismissed by the Board of Equalization.


Any person who wishes to distribute written testimony or evidence

on his appeal should prepare Five (5) copies of any documents.

One (1) copy for each member of the Board of Equalization,

One (1) copy for the Secretary of the Board, and

One (1) copy for the Assessor's Office.



After the taxpayer makes his presentation, the Board will make a decision and a

appeal directly to the State Tax Commission
