SSB 1054 – Property Assessment Appeal Board, elimination of future repeal



SSB 1054 eliminates the future repeal date for the Property Assessment Appeal Board. The board was established in 2005 to hear and review appeals of property valuation assessments by property owners after the local board of review process takes place. The board was initially scheduled to cease operations after July 1, 2013, but was extended through various pieces of legislation to July 1, 2021.

Other provisions of the bill make changes to the process for filing an appeal with the board, notifications of appeals and decisions by the board, including aligning the district court review of board decisions with existing review procedures under Code 17A, which governs review of state agency decisions.
