eAppeals: How to File an Appeal online

eAppeals

News Release

Date: June 13, 2013

The Department of Assessments and the independent Board of Equalization are bringing online a new set of tools that will make it dramatically easier for taxpayers to see how their property compares to others we’ve used to set assessed values. We’re taking a cumbersome paper process and going digital with an easy-to-follow online system. King County eAppeals (kingcounty.gov/eappeals) is similar to filing your federal income taxes electronically.
