The York County Board of Supervisors is seeking applications from county residents to fill a vacancy on the Board of Equalization (BOE). The BOE meets on an as-needed basis and is tasked with hearing and considering a taxpayer’s appeal of their property’s real estate assessment as determined by the county’s Real Estate Assessor. The BOE is charged with increasing, decreasing, or maintaining the assessment.
Members of the BOE must be county landowners and state law requires at least 30 percent of the members be knowledgeable real estate professionals.
Applications to serve on the BOE are reviewed by the Board of Supervisors. The Board’s selections are then sent to the Circuit Court Judge who makes the official appointment.
York County citizens interested in applying for appointment to the BOE, or any board/commission, may obtain an application at the County Administrator’s Office at 224 Ballard Street in Yorktown, or by calling (757) 890-3320.
