Who is the Board Of Equalization?

The Board of Equalization is wholly separate and apart from the Assessor's Office. It is comprised of three County residents appointed by the Board of San Juan County Council to three year terms. Board members are selected for their knowledge of real estate values and each member is required by law to attend an intensive two day course on the valuation of real property. Board members receive a stipend per meeting day and attend yearly continuing education training with the Washington State Department of Revenue. The Board is directed by state law (Revised Code of Washington, RCW, and Washington Administrative Code, WAC). A list of San Juan County's current Board members is available upon request.
