Board of Assessment Review

Meetings

  • Time schedule is decided each year, and historically, meetings are held in May. 


BAR members must:

•  have knowledge of property values in the municipality
•  be at least 18 years old
•  be a citizen of the United States
•  be a resident of the municipality in which the board serves; and
•  attend required training

The BAR constitutes what is known as a quasi-judicial body and the members of the board are charged with judicial responsibility to get all the facts, and apply appropriate laws and reasoning to the facts in a fair and judicious manner.  Members are appointed to a five year term.  

As an initial appointee or re-appointee to the board of assessment review (BAR), members must attend a training session, taught by a county director of real property tax services.
