Board of Equalization
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Loudoun County advisory bodies are conducting "electronic meetings" under the Continuity of Government Ordinance (PDF) adopted by the Board of Supervisors on March 16, 2021. Meetings dates of this advisory body may differ from its normal schedule. Information on the actual meeting dates and times of this advisory body and on how to access the meeting remotely will be posted on the Loudoun County Government Calendar and at loudoun.gov/remoteparticipation. Agendas and related documents prepared for the meetings are posted below.
The BOE is an independent body. Members of the BOE are Loudoun County property owners who have been appointed by the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. The BOE does not determine the initial property assessment nor does it set the tax rate. Those functions are performed by the Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue and the Board of Supervisors, respectively.
File an Appeal
Property owners who believe their assessments are incorrect may file an Application for Review with the Commissioner of the Revenue online at loudoun.gov/reaa by March 8, 2021. The Board of Equalization will begin taking appeals on March 15, 2021.
The BOE has an online appeal application system for use by the citizens of Loudoun County. Commercial property filers are required to file using the online system. Appeals filed online are generally scheduled first, with paper applications scheduled last.
All written materials, maps, photographs, and other documentary evidence which the appellant intends to present during a hearing must be filed with the BOE no later than June 1, 2020, or fifteen (15) days prior to the scheduled hearing date, whichever is earlier. The Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue must file all evidence no later than fifteen (15) days prior to the scheduled hearing date.
However, at the sole discretion of the BOE, other written materials, maps, photographs, and other documentary evidence may be admitted into evidence at any time, either from the appellant, or the Commissioner of the Revenue. If additional documentary evidence is admitted, the BOE has the discretion to decide a continuance.
