Taxpayers who want the county to rethink the taxable assessed value of their property have until 5 p.m. Aug. 7 to appeal to the Board of Equalization.
A Notice of Value was mailed to each Clark County property owner in June, according to a county news release. Under state law, property owners are entitled to appeal, without charge, the county’s valuation.
Details on the appeal process can be found at www.clark.wa.gov/general-services/board-of-equalization. Property owners wanting to file an appeal can obtain forms by calling the board’s office at 360-397-2337 or emailing BOE@clark.wa.gov.
The appeal form and supporting documentation can be submitted at the Board of Equalization office, 1300 Franklin St., Suite 650, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The documents also can be mailed to Board of Equalization, P.O. Box 5000, Vancouver, WA 98666. To be accepted, they must be postmarked no later than Aug. 7. They also can be faxed to 360-397-6162.
The board is comprised of three residents who provide an impartial and independent forum for property owners. Hearings are held on an individual basis.
