KANSAS CITY, Mo. – In an effort to help provide an accurate and current status report on appeals to the Board of Equalization (BOE), the Assessment Department last month offered to assign staff to assist the BOE in entering any unprocessed appeal applications submitted by mail, in-person or email.
Following review of an email account managed by BOE staff, the Assessment Department found approximately 8,600 “unread” emails. The Assessment Department immediately assigned staff to review those emails for any unresolved BOE appeals. A review by the Assessment Department determined that approximately 3,800 unresolved BOE appeals were contained in those emails.
The Assessment Department is diligently working to make contact with those appellants and ensure that those BOE appeals are properly processed.
