Nelson Wants Tax Challenge Board

Item: Taxation representation: Panel of citizens could hold hearings on tax challenges/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Citizens appealing their property value assessments next summer might not plead their cases before Kootenai County commissioners. They might face a panel of fellow citizens. Commissioner Jai Nelson is leading efforts to create a three-citizen panel to hold hearings on appeals of commercial and private property valuations.

Question: Would you rather make your taxation appeal to a panel of fellow citizens initially or go straight to county commissioners acting as a board of equalization?
