What happens after I submit my appeal?

Your appeal will be sent to the Board of Equalization (BOE). The deadline is June 30th, 2023. The BOE typically starts hearing cases in July. The BOE dates and times for hearings will be published in Lynchburg News and the Advance Legal Section. After your appeal is heard by the BOE, you will receive written notification of your property value in the mail. If you disagree with the BOE's decision, you may file a case with the Lynchburg Circuit Court. The Clerk of Court can assist you with questions regarding filing.
