Appeal Options

If you disagree with the Assessor’s Notice of Determination (NOD), you may choose to appeal that decision to the County Board of Equalization.

The CBOE will hear appeals during Sept. and Oct. for real property (land and buildings) and personal property (furnishings, machinery, and equipment), 39-8-104 and 39-8-107(2), C.R.S.  The CBOE must conclude its hearings and render decisions by Nov. 1, 2021, 39-8-107(2), C.R.S.  No later than Nov. 5, 2021, letters will be mailed and emailed to property owners advising them of the outcome of their appeal(s).  Online appeals may be filed beginning Aug. 30, 2021.

In Douglas County, the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) sits as the County Board of Equalization (CBOE).  A taxpayer may choose to appeal the decision of the Assessor’s office to the CBOE.  In order to process appeals within the State’s statutory time limits, the BOCC appoints Hearing Officers to preside over hearings and to make recommendations to the CBOE.
