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. 

You may contact us:

By phone at 801-451-3367 or 801-451-3329

THE DEADLINE TO FILE IS SEPTEMBER 15 OF THE CURRENT YEAR.


The deadline for filing real property appeal applications for the 2018 tax year is September 17, 2018.   Requests received after the deadline have to be reviewed by the Board of Equalization (BOE) in order to determine whether the appeal can be accepted or if they have to deny.

Please fill out the late appeal application (this is the form with all the lines) stating why you are submitting this appeal after September 17, 2018.  The BOE does not review value at this point.  The BOE reads the explanation (your situation) to determine if they can accept the late appeal or not.

This Late appeal application needs to be submitted with the Original appeal application and your supporting documentation because if this late appeal is accepted it will be put in the system to be worked.

Please sign both the Late appeal application and the Original appeal application.

Once the appeal applications are received it will be reviewed by the Board of Equalization and a letter will be mailed to you informing you if the appeal could be accepted or Denied.  The Board of Equalization may accept appeals filed after the deadline for extenuating circumstances. 

If you have any question please call the Tax Administration department @ 801-451-3329.

This Personal Property Penalty Waiver Appeal application must be filed with the Board of Equalization within (30) calendar days of notification of penalty.
