Board of Equalization


The Board of Equalization is an independent body organized to hear appeals of various determinations made by the Assessor's determination of assessed valuations and to equalize property. The Board and Clerk are separate from and operate independently from the Douglas County Assessor.  Douglas County hires an independent Hearing Examiner to proceed over Board of Equalization hearings (Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 458-14-136). The goal is to provide an impartial hearing environment that protects each party's due process rights.

The Board is also responsible for equalizing the assessed values so that all real and personal properties in Douglas County are assessed equitably at 100% of their true and fair value, with comparable properties assessed at comparable values.

Member Information
