Board of Equalization

The Davis County Commission is the Board of Equalization (BOE). As the BOE they make all final decisions regarding the adjustment and equalization of real and personal property values and assessments in Davis County. They review the recommendations and findings of Hearing Officers appointed by the BOE.


The Davis County Auditor mails a "Notice of Assessors' Property Market Valuation" at the end of July each year. If you disagree with the market value of your property as stated on that notice, you may Appeal the value with the BOE, at the Tax Administration office. 

To the left of this screen is the Appeal applications.

In the Appeal process the "Qualified Real Property" may change who has the burden of proof. There are Frequently Asked Questions that explain what & how Qualified Real Property works. 

This is important information for Appeal hearing on qualified Real Property.

  • It is important both parties come fully prepared to argue their opinion of value, regardless of who carries the burden of proof.
  • The county BOE will be free to consider all evidence available to them, even if the inflation adjusted value is presumed most correct.
  • The party arguing against the inflation adjusted value may be subject to greater scrutiny by the county BOE.

Late Appeal Application

The deadline for filing real property appeal applications for the 2023 tax year is September 15, 2023.   Requests received after the deadline have to be reviewed by the Board of Equalization (BOE) in order to determine whether the appeal can be accepted or if they have to deny.

Please fill out the late appeal application (this is the form with all the lines) stating why you are submitting this appeal after September 15, 2023.  The BOE does not review value at this point.  The BOE reads the explanation (your situation) to determine if they can accept the late appeal or not.

This Late appeal application needs to be submitted with the Original appeal application and your supporting documentation because if this late appeal is accepted it will be put in the system to be worked.

Please sign both the Late appeal application and the Original appeal application.

Once the appeal applications are received it will be reviewed by the Board of Equalization and a letter will be mailed to you informing you if the appeal could be accepted or Denied.  The Board of Equalization may accept appeals filed after the deadline for extenuating circumstances. 

If you have any question please call the Tax Administration department 801-451-3329 or email us at taxadmin@daviscountyutah.gov.
