Additional meetings may be held at other times as required to publicly examine and equalize the assessments extended in the current year on the taxable property of said county, for taxes to be levied in the year 2022, and to correct all errors in valuation, description or qualities of property assessed by the assessor.  The owner or agent of any taxable property who feels there are inequities in their assessment or exemptions may file a petition and appear before the board at the time and place appointed.

Settling disagreements on property value.

You can contact Whitman County Assessor’s office at (509) 397-6220 to review your valuation whenever you have questions about your property value. Property owners can often settle disagreements at this level without continuing the appeal process. However, you still need to preserve your appeal rights by timely filing your appeal form with the Board of Equalization.
