Annual Open Book / Board of Review

Each municipality in Wisconsin must hold an Open Book and Board of Review (BOR) session.

Open Book and Board of Review sessions generally take place late May to mid-June; however, some may occur later.

  • Open Book – takes place first. During this session, the municipality's assessment roll (which lists all the municipality's properties) is open for examination. The property owner can informally discuss the property value with the local assessor. If the property value is changed at Open Book, the assessor corrects the assessment roll.
  • Board of Review – if the property owner is not satisfied with the assessment after attending Open Book, the property owner can bring his/her appeal to the BOR. The Board schedules assessment appeals requiring property owners to provide evidence proving the assessment is incorrect. After review, if the Board agrees with the property owner's evidence, it can change the assessment.
