August’s top question: I want to appeal my assessed value. Since the deadline is August 31, 2020, what is the best way to get my petition in quickly?

Answer: You may file online by using the Appeal E-file option.  You must include a copy of your assessment notice when submitting your appeal, or it will be returned to you as incomplete.

If you have any questions about the online form or the appeal process, please contact the clerk of the board at 425-388-3407 or boe@snoco.org for more information.


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, on the recommendation of the executive. 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. Board members must have knowledge of property values, and may not be an elected official or employed by an elected official. Board members are limited to three terms of three years each, and must attend training within one year of appointment or reappointment.
