The function of the Board of Equalization is simply to assure that the market value placed on your property is fair and accurate.
It is not the Board's responsibility to determine whether your tax is too high, or if you can afford to pay your Property Tax Statement.
If you decide to appeal the assessed value of your property, please follow these 3 steps:
Step 1. Discuss your assessment with a representative from the Assessor's Office. You may contact their office via phone
(208-446-1500) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Step 2. Submit your Appeal Packet to the Kootenai County Commissioners' office before 5:00pm on Monday, June 27, 2016.
Step 3. Schedule your Appeal Hearing with the Board of Equalization. This is done in the Kootenai County Commissioner's office
when you turn in your Appeal Packet.
