The function of the Board of Equalization is simply to assure that the market value placed on your property by the County is fair and accurate.
The Board cannot adjust value based on the amount of taxes due or on your ability to pay the amount on 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.
Five copies of your packet must be delivered or postmarked by 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.
