Appeals

Board of Equalization

The Davis County Commission is the Board of Equalization (BoE). As the BoE they make all final decisions regarding the adjustment and equalization of real and personal property values and assessments in Davis County. They review the recommendations and findings of Hearing Officers appointed by the BoE.

The Davis County Clerk/Auditor mails a "Notice of Assessors' Property Market Valuation" at the end of July each year. If you disagree with the market value of your property as stated on that notice, you may appeal the value with the BoE, at the Tax Administration office.
