Notice is hereby given that the Board of Review for the Town of Freeman, Crawford County, Wisconsin, shall hold its first meeting on
April 30, 2017, from 5:00 -7:00 pm, at the Town Shop on County B.
Please be advised of the following requirements to appear before the board of review and procedural requirements if appearing
before the board:
1.   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.
2.   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.
3.   The board of review may not hear an objection to the amount or valuation 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.
4.   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.
5.   When appearing before the board of review, the objecting person shall specify in writing the person's estimate of the value of 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 that estimate.
6.   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 the person supplies the assessor with all the
information about income and expenses, as specified in the assessor's manual under s. 73.03 (2a), Wis. stats., that the assessor
requests. The Town of Freeman 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 s. 19.35 (1), Wis. stats.
7.   The board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the board a letter from a physician,
surgeon, or osteopath that confirms their illness or disability. No other persons may testify by telephone.
8.   No person may appear before the board of review, testify to the board by telephone, or contest the amount of any assessment
unless, at least 48 hours before the first meeting of the board, or at least 48 hours before the objection is heard if the objection is
allowed under s.70.47 (3) (a), Wis. stats., that person provides to the clerk of the board of review notice as to whether the person will
ask for the removal of a member of the board of review and, if so, which member, and provides a reasonable estimate of the length of
time the hearing will take.
Notice is hereby given this 10th day of March 2018.
