Board of Review

about the board

The Board is comprised of five citizens of the City appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Council. This board meets once annually each Spring to review the Assessment Rolls as prepared by the Assessor, and make any corrections or omissions as necessary. They are also available to hear any property owner's objection to their assessment to determine if any adjustment is necessary. Each member is held to conduct the Board of Review according to the WI Department of Revenue Guide for Board of Review Members

To volunteer to be a part of this very important Board, return a completed Offer to Volunteer form (PDF) to the Mayor at City Hall, or call the City Clerk’s office at 715-682-7071 for more information.

Property Assessment

The City Clerk conducts the annual Board of Review. Wisconsin State Statues 70.46-70.48 allows a property owner to object to the assessment placed on their real estate or personal property. The property owner must file an objection form (PDF) with the City Clerk who schedules an appointment with the Board. 

The City of Ashland is in the revaluation process, 2021 being the final year. Revaluation is the process of assessing property values that uses current market value to replace antiquated an inequitable assessment rolls. Despite popular believe the process is revenue neutral, meaning that municipalities do not gain any additional tax revenue. The end goal is a fair distribution of the tax burden. 

Below are common publications provided by the WI Department of Revenue for the property owner.
