How much time will I have for my hearing?

You will be given the time you need to complete a simple form and you will be sworn to tell the truth under oath. You will then present your case using whatever documents, calculations and other evidence you believe correctly determines the value of your property.  Board members may ask you questions to amplify or clarify your statements.  In a limited number of cases, the Board may want to schedule a site visit to your property.  Please understand that the Board is made up of volunteers, whose sole objective is to determine one issue:  Is your assessment fair and equitable relative to that of the other property owners in Madison?
