Guide for Property Owners

Objection Form for Real Property Assessment  Section 70.47(7)(a), Wisconsin Statutes states “ No person shall be allowed in any action or proceedings to question the amount or valuation of property unless such written objection has been filed and such person in good faith presented evidence to such board in support of such objection and made full disclosure before said board . . .”

Note: The Board of Review can hear only sworn oral testimony regarding the value of the property. It cannot hear protests regarding the amount of property taxes or questions of exemption. The best evidence of the value of your property is a recent arm’s-length sale of your property. The next best evidence is recent arm’s-length sales of comparable property. If there are no sales of your property or comparable property, you should present other evidence that indicates the value of your property. This would include cost, income, appraisals, and sales of like property.

Request to Testify by Telephone or Submit a Sworn Written Statement at the Board of Review (BOR)

Section 70.47(8), Wis. Stats., states “...Instead of appearing in person at the hearing, the board may allow the property owner, or the property owner’s representative, at the request of either person, to appear before the board, under oath, by telephone or to submit written statements, under oath, to the board. ...” NOTE: The legal requirements of the Notice of Intent to Appear at the BOR must be satisfied and the Objection Form must be completed and submitted to the BOR as required by law prior to the Request to Testify by Telephone or Submit Sworn Written Statement form being submitted.
