Description

Sections 1 and 2 of the bill establish authority for the board of
assessment appeals to refer a matter before it to a hearing officer for an
expedited hearing, upon the request of a taxpayer in certain
circumstances. There are deadlines for requesting and conducting the
hearing and for the hearing officer to make his or her order. The

procedure for the hearing is similar to those hearings conducted before
the board. If unchanged by the board of assessment appeals, a hearing
officer's order is appealable in the same manner as an order issued by the
board.
Section 3 creates the property tax valuation protest deadline task
force. The task force consists of 7 members: The property tax
administrator or the administrator's designee and 6 members appointed by
the governor. The task force meets over one year and is required to
consider and make recommendations to legislative committees to extend
the taxpayer's deadline to protest a property tax valuation and to adjust
other related deadlines.
Under current law, an assessor may, with the permission of the
board of county commissioners, include an estimate of property taxes
owed in a notice of valuation. Section 4 requires an assessor to include
this estimate and allows the assessor to include a range of values.
If in the consideration of a protest an assessor finds that he or she
made a systematic error and the valuations of other similar properties are
incorrect, section 5 requires the assessor to correct the error for the other
similar properties.
