Notice is hereby given that pursuant to Sec. 70.45 of Wis. Statutes, the following meetings regarding Assessments and the Board of Review for the Village of Belgium shall be as follows:  Open Book – Monday, May 23th, 2022 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.  Open Book will be via phone or email only.  Call Eric Feavel at 262-253-1142 or email the assessor any time before the end of the Open Book to eric@wi-assessor.com. Board of Review – Thursday, June 16th, 2022, 7-9:00 p.m.  The Board of Review shall meet at the Belgium Village Hall, 104 Peter Thein Avenue, Belgium, Wisconsin. Additional dates will be used to reconvene said meeting, as determined by the Board.

 

Please be advised of the following requirements to appear before the board of review and procedural requirements if appearing before the board:

 

No person will be allowed to appear before the board of review, to testify to the board by telephone, or to contest the amount of any assessment of real or personal property if the person has refused a reasonable written request by certified mail of the assessor to enter onto property to conduct an exterior view such property being assessed.

 

After the first meeting of the board of review and before the board’s final adjournment, no person who is scheduled to appear before the board of review may contact or provide information to a member of the board about the person’s objection, except at a session of the board.  Open book shall occur no less than 7 days prior to the board of review.

 

The board of review may not hear an objection to the amount or evaluation of property unless, at least 48 hours before the board’s first scheduled meeting, the objector provides to the board’s clerk written or oral notice of an intent to file an objection, except that upon a showing of good cause and the submission of a written objection, the board shall waive that requirement during the first 2 hours of the board’s first scheduled meeting, and the board may waive that requirement up to the end of the 5th day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than 5 days with proof of extraordinary circumstances for failure to meet the 48 hour notice requirement and failure to appear before the board of review during the first 2 hours of the first scheduled meeting.

 

Objections to the amount or valuation of property shall first be made in writing and filed with the clerk of the board of review within the first 2 hours of the board’s first scheduled meeting, except that, upon evidence of extraordinary circumstances, the board may waive that requirement up to the end of the 5th day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than 5 days.  The board may require objections to the amount or valuation of property to be submitted on forms approved by the Department of Revenue, and the board shall require that any forms include stated valuations of the property in question.  Persons who own land and improvements to that land may object to the aggregate valuation of that land and improvements to that land, but no person who owns land and improvements to that land may object only to the valuation of that land or only to the valuation of improvements to that land.  No person may be allowed in any action or proceedings to question the amount or valuation of property unless the written objection has been filed and that person in good faith presented evidence to the board in support of the objections and made full disclosure before the board, under oath, of all of that person’s property liable to assessment in the district and the value of that property.  The requirement that objections be in writing may be waived by express action of the board.

 

When appearing before the board of review, the objecting person shall specify in writing the person’s estimate of the value for the land and of the improvements that are the subject of the person’s objection and specify the information that the person used to arrive at the that estimate.

 

No person may appear before the board of review, testify to the board by telephone, or object to a valuation if that valuation was made by the assessor or the objector using the income method of valuation, unless no later than 7 days before the first meeting of the board of review, the person supplies the assessor with all the information about income and expenses that the assessor requests, as specified in the assessor’s manual under Wis. Stat. § 73.03 (2a).  The Village of Belgium has an ordinance for the confidentiality of information about income and expenses that is provided to the assessor under this paragraph that provides exceptions for persons using information in the discharge of duties imposed by law or the duties of their officer or by order of a court.  The information that is provided under this paragraph, unless a court determined that it is inaccurate, is not subject to the right of inspection and copying under Wis. Stat. § 19.35 (1).

 

The board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the board a letter from a physician, physician assistant, or advanced practice nurse prescriber certified under s. 441.16(2) that confirms their illness or disability.  No other persons may testify by telephone unless the Board, in its discretion, has determined to grant a property owner’s or their representative’s request to testify under oath by telephone or written statement.
