|The Board of
Equalization is an independent body of private citizens appointed by the
Stevens County Commissioners. It is comprised of three members and up
to four alternate members.
|The Board of
Equalization hears and decides appeals concerning determinations made by the
assessor including: changes to real and personal property valuations,
current use determinations, designated forest land determinations and senior
citizen/disabled person exemption determinations.
|The Board's goal
is to provide an impartial hearing environment that protects each party's
due process rights and results in a fair decision.
Equalization forms may be obtained from the Clerk of the Board, located at
the above address and phone number, the Assessor's office or on this website.
|Appeals must be filed with the Board of Equalization by the filing date deadline of July 1, of the assessment year, or within 60 days of the mailing date on the Assessor's Notice of Change of Value.|
