Local Board of Appeal and Equalization

COVID-19 Note: Local Board of Appeal and Equalization meetings are being held while observing strict social distancing guidelines. Learn more.


Members of the East Bethel City Council act as the Local Board of Appeal and Equalization (LBAE). The LBAE has statutory responsibility to review estimated market values and property classifications in the city. The board hears appeals from property owners regarding the assessor’s estimated market value of their property and will either adjust the valuation, or uphold the assessment as sent out in the property valuation notice.

How You Can Appeal Your Market Value and Property Class

If you believe the value or classification of your property is incorrect, please contact the East Bethel City Assessor to express your concerns. If you are still not satisfied with the valuation or classification after discussing it with your assessor, you may appear before the local Board of Appeal and Equalization. Generally an appearance before the local Board of Appeal and Equalization is required by law before an appeal can be taken to the county Board of Appeal and Equalization.

For the 2020 LBAE meeting, please view the LBAE Notice: Instructions for Meeting with Social Distancing Guidelines.
