Board of Review

The Board of Review shall consist of the Mayor, City Clerk, and three (3) residents of the City, any one or all of whom may be public officer or public employee. All members, excepting for the Mayor and City Clerk, shall be appointed by the Mayor, subject to confirmation by the Council.



The Board of Review is responsible for correcting errors in assessment. Each year the Board examines the assessment roll, corrects any errors in description or computation and adds any property the assessor may have omitted. The Board is also a quasi-judicial body with the authority to hear sworn testimony, receive documentary evidence, and to make a determination regarding the market value of property.

Process to Challenge the Assessed Property Value
City of Chilton property owners who have questions about the recent property assess
ments have a forum in which to research and challenge the assessor’s statement.  The three-step process begins in April so residents can review the current year assessment roll.

1. The session, called Open Book, is a conference, either face-to-face or over the phone, with an Assessor to discuss the value of your property.  You have until 48 hours before Board of Review to contact the Assessor about your new value.  When available you can set an appointment with an Accurate Assessor during the pre-set dates listed below.

Open Book Sessions

        • Monday, April 8, 2024 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
2.  The next step in the process is to state your case before City of Chilton's Board of Review.  Board of Review functions like court and is required to evaluate evidence based on facts. You or your representative must provide factual evidence that your property is inequitably assessed. The burden of proof is solely on the taxpayer. The Assessor’s value is presumed correct by State Law until proven otherwise.  Prior to the meeting, property owners will need to file an object form and schedule an appointment to have your case heard before the board.  A property owner can request to testify by telephone or submit a sworn written statement to the Board of Review.
      • Thursday, April 29, 2024 10 a.m. to Noon 

The following information is needed to schedule your appointment:

  • Name
  • Property address
  • Phone number
  • Property parcel number
