What is the Board of Review?

The Board of Review (BOR) is a statutory board responsible for correcting any errors in assessment that have been made by the local assessor. The BOR’s primary duties are set forth in Wis. Stat. § 70.47(6) and include examining the assessment roll for omitted property and double assessments, correcting any errors or omissions in the descriptions or computations found in the assessment roll, and adjusting assessments when they have been proven incorrect by sworn oral testimony.
