Deadline: AUGUST 20, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.
The Assessor's office mailed new assessed value notices June 21, 2019. You will then have sixty (60) days to appeal your assessed value from the date of that mailing. You may appeal by submitting a completed petition form online (E-file), in person, or by mail. Please note: if appealing after July 1, you must submit a copy of your assessed value notice with your petition. If you do not, the board cannot accept your appeal.
About the Board
The board is an independent body organized to hear appeals of various determinations made by the assessor. It is comprised of five citizen members appointed by the Snohomish County Council. 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.
The Board of Equalization is made up of five members who serve three-year terms and are limited to three consecutive full terms. No more than two board members may reside in the same council district. Board members must have knowledge of property values, and may not be an elected official or employed by an elected official. Board members are appointed by council on the recommendation from the executive.
Submittal guidelines, deadlines and instructions are included within each form.
