ANNUAL OPEN BOOK and BOARD OF REVIEW
Each municipality in Wisconsin must hold an Open Book and Board of Review (BOR) session. The City of Omro's Open Book is scheduled for Thursday, April 22, 2021 from 9am-11am and the BOR is scheduled for Tuesday, May 4, 2021 from 1pm-3pm.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, Open Book sessions will be conducted by telephone. If you would like to set up a telephone appointment, please contact Bowmar Appraisal, Inc. at (920) 733-5369 during regular business hours (M-F, 8:30am-4:30pm) no later than three (3) days prior to the Board of Review. Special appointments for in-person will be available if necessary.
Open Book - takes place first. During this session, the municipality's assessment roll (which lists all the municipalities properties) is open for examination. The property owner can informally discuss the property value with the local assessor. If the property value is changed at the Open Book, the assessor corrects the assessment roll.
Board of Review - if the property owner is not satisfied with the assessment after attending Open Book, the property owner can bring his/her appeal to the Board of Review. The board schedules assessment appeals requiring property owners to provide evidence proving the assessment is incorrect. After review, if the Board agrees with the property owner's evidence, it can change the assessment.
