Jackson Count Executive Frank White, Jr

“The Board of Equalization took the appropriate step today by requesting additional information regarding the impact of the proposal before them. The Board has every right to be fully informed and the County looks forward to providing members with information from the assessment department to ensure that happens.

“From the beginning, I have said the County is committed to ensuring that the assessment process is both fair and accurate. We remain actively engaged in that process as the assessment department continues to work with property owners to process informal reviews and today, the BOE began hearing formal appeals. The assessment process is long, but it is in place to ensure that property owners are heard and that corrections, when appropriate, are made. The deadline to file a BOE appeal is Monday, July 29.”
