Tender Pay: If the owner of a home les a complaint against
the valuation of that home, then, while such complaint is
pending, the owner is entitled to tender to the county treasurer
an amount of taxes based on the valuation claim for such
home in the complaint. Note: If the amount tendered is less
than the amount nally determined, interest will be charged
on the dierence. In addition, if the amount nally determined
equals or exceeds the amount originally billed, a penalty will
be charged on the dierence between the amount tendered
and the nal amount.
Multiple Homes: Only homes that (1) are in the same taxing
district and (2) have identical ownership may be included
in one complaint. Otherwise, separate complaints must be
used. The increase or decrease in valuation must be sepa-
rately stated for each home. If more than three homes are
included in one complaint, use additional sheets of paper.
General Instructions: The Board of Revision may increase
or decrease the total value of any home included in a com-
plaint. The board will notify all parties not less than 10 days
prior to the hearing of the time and place the complaint will
be heard. The complainant should submit any documents
supporting the claimed valuation to the board prior to the
hearing. The board may also require the complainant and/
or owner to provide the board additional information with the
complaint and may request additional information at the hear-
ing, including purchase and lease agreements, closing state-
ments, appraisal reports and cost of improvements added to
the home (e.g. skirtings and awnings) for the property.

plainant shall provide to the board of revision all information
or evidence within the complainant’s knowledge or posses-
sion that aects the real property” in question. Evidence or
information that is not presented to the board cannot later be
presented on any appeal, unless good cause is shown for the
