Board of Revision
Filing a Challenge with the Board of Revision If a property owner believes that their assessment is incorrect or unjust, they have the option to file a challenge with the board of revision.

How to File
E-File your complaint E-filing your complaint is the preferred method and it is quick, typically taking less than 10 minutes. The only things you need are a valid email address and phone number. E-filing bypasses the notary requirement and it is available 24/7 during the filing period. Property owners will also receive a confirmation email almost immediately after they file with a PDF copy of the complaint. The BOR has created a Step-by-Step Board of Revision Electronic Filing Guide for your reference.
Other ways to file your complaint Property owners can also submit their complaint by mail, email or fax. They can print a hard copy DTE 1, fill in the information, have it notarized and send it the BOR by mail, e-mail or fax.
