Board of Review
The Board of Review functions like a court in that it is required to evaluate evidence based on facts. You must provide factual information showing your property is incorrectly assessed.

Please be advised of the following requirements to appear before the board of review and procedural requirements if appearing before the board:
Wisconsin law states, “Instead of appearing in person…the board of review may allow the property owner… to appear before the board, under oath, by telephone or to submit written statements, under oath, to the board” (Wis., Stats., 70.47(8)).
Please contact the municipal clerk for more information on accommodations to file objections remotely by phone, or to file objections in writing. 

Schedule an Appointment
To schedule an appointment before the Board of Review, please complete the following:
 - Notice of Intent to File Objection
 - Objection Form for Real Property Assessment

All completed documents MUST be returned to the City Clerk’s office at least 48-hours prior to the Board of Review. Be sure to provide factual information showing your property is incorrectly assessed.
