Lancaster County Seeks Feedback On Property Valuation Protest Process

Lincoln, NE - September 13, 2017 - The Lancaster County Commissioners are seeking feedback about the current property valuation protest process through a public hearing. Citizens are encouraged to attend and share their experiences of the valuation protest process with the Lancaster County Board on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 4:00 pm in Room 112 at the County-City Building located at 555 S. 10th Street in downtown Lincoln.

Citizens wishing to provide feedback to the Lancaster County Board about the valuation protest process should be prepared to offer testimony on how the process has worked for them, what problems they believe exist and ideas on how the process can be improved. Those unable to attend the public hearing can submit written comments in lieu of attending the meeting. Written correspondence to be shared with the Lancaster County Board can be sent in care of the Lancaster County Clerk at 555 S. 10th Street, Suite 108, Lincoln, Nebraska 68508 or emailed to protest@lancaster.ne.gov.

The public hearing is a result of the findings from the Board of Equalization Protest Review Committee that was created in an effort to ensure that the valuation protest process is working effectively and meeting constituent needs. In addition to the public hearing, the Lancaster County Board and Clerk's offices are tracking constituent complaints about the process in an effort to better address them. Property tax payers are also encouraged to utilize the Lancaster County Assessor's informal hearing process which takes place in January, February and March, prior to the issuance of final values on March 25th.

Established in 1859, Lancaster County is Nebraska's second most populated county. Home to the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, Lancaster County is a growing and dynamic community.
