A001 - Adjudication of Tax Appeals

The Board of Tax Appeals maintains public confidence in the state tax system. The Board is the final administrative authority for resolving disputes of property, excise, and other taxes in the state of Washington. As an integral part of the state's tax system, the Board provides a convenient and inexpensive forum for both taxing authorities and taxpayers. The Board processes 4,000 new appeals annually, many presenting complex legal and valuation issues. The Board conducts hearings throughout the state and issues comprehensive, timely written decisions based upon generally accepted appraisal practices, Washington statutes and constitution, case law, and board precedents.
