Property owners who choose to file an appeal are contesting the value of their property as it existed on Jan. 1 this year. The board does not have the authority to consider property values based on the current condition of the real estate market, according to the Auditor’s Office.

Last year, the Montgomery County Auditor’s Office reviewed thousands of tornado-damaged properties and already reduced the values on 1,200. The $46.3 million loss to homes and businesses wiped away $1.7 million in anticipated 2020 tax revenues.
The Board of Revision can revisit those decisions or look at instances where property owners believe they were missed in the post-tornado process, according to the Auditor’s Office.
The Board of Revision is a quasi-judicial body that is responsible for determining the fair market value of property for taxing purposes. The board is comprised of the president of the Montgomery County Board of County Commissioners, the county treasurer, and the county auditor or their designated representatives. The board conducts hearings to allow property owners the opportunity to challenge their taxable property value by sharing property information directly with the county.
