Board of Equalization and Appeals Notice

Notice is hereby given that the Board of Appeal and Equalization for the City of Porter shall meet on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in a virtual format. Instructions to connect to the virtual meeting were distributed to all property taxpayers by the Yellow Medicine County Assessor. If you cannot locate the connection instructions and would like to attend the virtual meeting, please contact a member of the City Council or submit a request using the "Send a Message" form at the bottom of this website.

The purpose of this meeting is to determine whether taxable property in the jurisdiction has been properly valued and classified by the assessor, and to determine whether corrections need to be made.

If you believe the value or classification of your property is incorrect, please contact your assessor's office to discuss your concerns. If you are still not satisfied with the valuation or classification after discussing it with your assessor, you may appear before the local board of appeal and equalization. The board shall review the valuation, classification, or both if necessary, and shall correct it as needed. Generally, an appearance before your local board of appeal and equalization is required by law before an appeal can be taken to the county board of appeal and equalization.
