Board of Review
The Board of Review is a quasi-judicial body where the property owner and the assessor present testimony and evidence under oath to support their differing opinions of the assessed value. By Wisconsin law, the assessor is presumed correct unless the property owner can present direct evidence supporting a different assessed value. After both parties have presented their evidence, the Board of Review votes on a motion to affirm or modify the assessed value (or the Board may request additional information). After the Board of Review has heard all challenges to property assessments, their vote to adjourn certifies all assessments are final for that year. The Board of Review is the final opportunity for property assessments to be challenged each year.

The Board of Review certifies the assessment rolls and hears citizens appeals. The board consists of five citizens, each with a five year term. The Board of Review is authorized to hear citizen challenges to the value placed on their property by the City Assessor's Office. Evidence is presented by both the citizen and the assessor. The board then has the power to revise the property's value if it determines that it is warranted by reviewing the evidence.
The board is considered a quasi-judicial body, because it acts somewhat like a court by following accepted procedures and evaluating relevant facts in each case.
