The Board of Equalization (BOE) for the City and County of Broomfield hears appeals of property valuation and classification by the Assessor, which is accomplished through the protest or abatement process. The mission of the BOE is to assure just and equalized property tax assessments.
The City Clerk's staff provides administrative assistance to include assembly of documentation to be considered at the BOE meeting, taking minutes at the meeting, and scheduling for the real and personal property appeal and abatement process for petitions submitted by the taxpayers.
A taxpayer may choose to appeal the decision of the Assessor's Office to the BOE. In order to process appeals within the state's statutory time limits, the BOE appoints hearing officers to preside over hearings and to make recommendations to the BOE.
