eAppeals: Steps in the Online Process


Notes: Petitioner can withdraw or review their appeal anytime. Petitioner can
update/append their appeal no later than 7 business days before the appeal hearing
date.
  1. Petitioner creates and files online appeal
  2. Petitioner received an email confirmation within 24 hours of appeal submittal
  3. The Board of Equalization (BOE) receives appeal, reviews the appeal, and assigns the appeal status – pending or active
  4. The BOE notifies petitioner of appeal status and next steps (this may take several weeks due to appeal volume)
  5. If the appeal is not accepted, BOE places the appeal in a pending status and notifies the Petitioner about required actions and options
  6. If the appeal is accepted, BOE notifies Petitioner with details about their hearing date (this may take six months or more due to appeal volumes)
  7. Assessor sends response to the appeal to the Petitioner at least 14 business days before the appeal hearing date
  8. Petitioner attends hearing in person, by teleconference or allows the Board to make a decision based on submitted materials without attending
  9. Petitioner and Assessor are sent an email containing the Board Order with information about the decision of the BOE
  10. If Petitioner or Assessor does not accept decision, Petitioner or Assessor can file an appeal with the Washington State Board of Tax Appeals within 30 days of the mailing date of the BOE decision (either party may appeal the BOE decision)
  11. If Petitioner and Assessor accept decision, they do nothing: appeal process ends.
