The Council-Tax Administration Office is designated staff to the County Council on tax matters. This office administers the Board of Equalization, directs the hearing process, establishes policies and procedures, coordinates operations, and monitors the appeals process for the Board of Equalization.
Our office carries out general operations and administrative matters for the Board as described under rule except as delegated by statute to other elected offices or reserved for the Board.
Council-Tax Administration also chairs the Property Tax Committee, which is comprised of members representing each County office which regularly deals with property tax related issues. The Committee administers policy and makes decisions relating to tax deferrals, tax settlements, tax related abatements, adjustments, and prior year tax matters.
