What are the Burdens of Proof on Appeal?
Small Claims Division - The County must show that its value is correct.

Board of Tax Appeals - The County must show that the value of residential or commercial property is correct. However, if commercial real property is leased, the owner must provide income / expense information (up to three years) or the County’s value is presumed to be correct.

Increases in Value - If real property increases in value from the prior year, the County must first review the record of the property’s last physical inspection and must have documentation supporting the increase. If the value increases following a year when the value was reduced by appeal, then the County Appraiser must also show substantial and compelling reasons for increasing the value. For more information please call 620-227-4570.
