County Directors of Equalization are appointed to their office by the Board of County Commissioners. Their responsibility is to assess all real property in the county for property tax purpose. By law, the assessed value must be its full and true or market value. Resident persons dissatisfied with their assessment may appeal to the local board, the county board, the Office of Hearing Examiners (OHE) and then the courts. Consequently, an appeal may not be made to the county board of equalization without a previous appeal having been made to the local board, and so on. Non-resident property owners first step in the appeal process would be to the county board of equalization.
