The Board of County Commissioners plans to appeal the State Board’s decision. Watch their message.

In September, The Board of Douglas County Commissioners, in its capacity as the County Board of Equalization (CBOE), approved Douglas County Assessor Toby Damisch’s recommendation for an across-the-board reduction of 4% in residential property values, providing an average of $223 in estimated property tax relief for Douglas County homeowners.

The Commissioners have also committed to additional property tax relief in the form of a mill levy reduction. That reduction will be part of the County’s 2024 Budget, set for consideration during the Board’s Jan. 9, 2024 Business Meeting.

The State Board of Equalization consists of the Governor, the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, or their designees, and two members appointed by the Governor with consent of the Senate. According to State Law, the Board has the power to review the valuations determined for assessment of taxes upon the various classes of real and personal property located within the counties of the state.

Watch a news conference in response to the State Board of Equalization’s ruling.
