RESOLUTION 2020-20

 

WHEREAS, Buffalo County is in a

health emergency situation which

encourages, and at times has man-

dated, social distancing, and the

closure to the public of the Buffalo

County Courthouse, and

WHEREAS, there is a need to

process tax valuation protests for

tax year 2020 in a manner that

lessens in person contacts of the

parties contesting tax value, but af-

fords these parties the statutory

right to question and protest valua-

tions of taxable real estate in Buf-

falo County, and

WHEREAS, the use of e-mail to

file 2020 real estate tax protests is

a workable solution to abide by so-

cial distancing mandates, yet pro-

vides the public with access to pro-

test valuations, and

WHEREAS, any policy regarding

additional avenues in which pro-

tests may be filed does not in any

manner allow the filing of protests

on any document other than FORM

422. Additional materials may be

provided with initial filing of the

FORM 422, but this materials, sub-

mitted as e-mail attachments

should clear an Information Tech-

nology (IT) security clearances,

and

WHEREAS, Buffalo County

should adopt a policy to accept

2020 real estate valuation protests

when filed by e-mail when this sys-

tem provides:

1. A temporary email address

which may be used ONLY for the

filing of 2020 real estate tax valua-

tion protests.

2. Appropriate safeguards to this

county's IT systems.

3. The information and docu-

ments necessary to meet the mini-

mum statutory prerequisites for the

filing of tax valuation protests.

WHEREAS, due to the foregoing

findings there is also a need to ad-

dress policy and deadlines for tax-

payers who desire to file tax valua-

tion protests in the courthouse

drop box due to the current public

health situation.

BE IT RESOLVED THAT THE

How can I obtain a protest form?

All protests must use FORM 422,

a document that has been pre-

pared by the Nebraska Department

of Revenue.

FORM 422 available on Buffalo

County's Assessor's website.

https://www.buffalocounty.ne.go-

v/PROTEST-INFORM-

ATION-GUIDE

Alternatively, you can obtain a

form from:

https://revenue.nebraska.go-

v/files/doc/p-

ad/forms/422_Property_Valuation_Protest.pdf

Regardless as to how you obtain

FORM 422, please enter all infor-

mation on the form as requested on

the form, sign it, and be sure to

provide an email address, mailing

address, and phone number for

contact information.

How do I submit a protest by e--

mail?

It is required that the protest

must be filed on FORM 422. You

can provide additional materials

that are submitted with the FORM

422, but all protests must have a

FORM 422 submitted for each indi-

vidual parcel.

You will need to fill out FORM

422 and print it off, then sign it. Al-

ternatively, you can print off or oth-

erwise obtain a blank FORM 422

and fill that FORM 422 with the in-

formation requested. Thereafter

will need to scan the signed FORM

422, and any other information that

you may ask to be considered, and

send it as an attachment to an

email to:

protest@buffalocounty.ne.gov

to complete the email process for

filing of the 2020 tax valuation pro-

test. This email address is the only

acceptable address for email deliv-

ery of tax valuation protests. Do

not sent your protest to another

county email address or to some-

one you know who works for the

county. Only filings e-mailed to

this address will be accepted.

What if I have more than one par-

cel to protest valuation?

One FORM 422 can only be filed

to protest one parcel. If you have

more than one parcel to protest

valuation, you must file a separate

FORM 422 for each parcel. There-

after, you must send in each parcel

by a separate email with each indi-

vidual email containing one protest.

Who can I call if I need help?

Please call the Buffalo County

Clerk at 308-236-1226 as concerns

the protest process or need of a

FORM 422.

Can I submit evidence using a

flash drive or CD/DVD?

No. The BOE cannot accept dig-

ital media such as a USB stick, CD,

DVD, etc. due to hardware compat-

ibility and cybersecurity concerns,

and such items will be returned to

the protester (if feasible).

For protesters who wish to sub-

mit evidence electronically, i.e.

scanned documents, photographs,

maps, etc., with the protest, it can

be submitted as an attachment

with the emailed protest. Any at-

tachment submitted will be subject

to any Information Technology (IT)

software safety standards of Buf-

falo County. If the attachment is

not thought to be openable due to

IT's concerns, it will not be opened.

It is suggested that PDF type for-

mat be used for attachments.

Can I submit photos as evi-

dence?

Yes. Remember that all photos

and any other documents, includ-

ing the protest itself, the email ad-

dress that you use on the FORM

422, phone numbers, other infor-

mation on the protest, or other ma-

terials that you are using, become

public record and remain property

of Buffalo County - they cannot be

returned to you. If you want a copy

of the documents/materials that

you submitted to the Clerk, there

will a charge for copies. Please

write the parcel ID or property ad-

dress on a corner of a scanned

photo for emails. Any image sub-

mitted as an email attachment will

be subject to review and analyza-

tion of Buffalo County's IT Depart-

ment prior to opening. An attach-

ment may not be opened should

the county's IT Department con-

sider that attachment is a soft-

ware/technology risk. If photos are

submitted with protests that use

the mail, drop box, or are done in

person, please write the parcel ID

or property address on the back of

each photograph.

Can I submit written argument(s)

with my protest?

Yes. They must be sent with the

initial e-mailing. If done by attach-

ment to an email, the attachment

will be examined by IT as stated

above.

Can I submit additional evidence

and/or arguments after my protest

has been filed?

After the initial filing of the valua-

tion protest, no additional evidence

or arguments can be sent with ad-

ditional emails. Any evidence an-

d/or argument can only be submit-

ted at a scheduled in-person meet-

ing with a referee.

Can someone else file a real

property valuation protest on my

property?

Yes, State law allows anyone the

ability to file a real property valua-

tion protest on any property. How-

ever, if the person signing the pro-

test is a person authorized to pro-

test on behalf of the owner, such

person shall provide written author-

ization with the protest. If the per-

son signing the protest is not an

owner of the property or a person

authorized to protest on behalf of

the owner, the county clerk shall

mail a copy of the protest to the

owner of the property at the ad-

dress to which the property tax

statements are mailed.

How and when will I be notified

of the date, time, and place of

hearing on my protest? From the

information provided by you as

stated on your protest form, the

Clerk will send you information re-

garding date, time, and place of

your protest hearing. It is important

that your email address be work-

ing. That email address or your

postal delivery address will be used

by the Clerk for scheduling meet-

ings and sending notices of deci-

sions.

As now set by that Board (as of

late May 2020), valuation reviews

by Board appointed Referees are

to commence around June 15,

2020. Also, as now set by the

Board (late May 2020), due public

health directives, the Referees' re-

view hearings are to occur at the

Buffalo County Extension Office,

located at 1400 East 34th Street,

Kearney, Nebraska. Please use

the west door of the building to ac-

cess the hearing area.

Who will hear tax valuation pro-

tests?

Initially your protest will be

scheduled to be reviewed before

the BOE's Referees. These Refer-

ees have been appointed by the

BOE to review and recommend to

the Board 2020 valuations for the

properties that have valuation pro-

tests.

Thereafter, the BOE will review

the Referees' recommendations at

a public hearing. Time schedules

for the Board's review of the Refer-

ee's recommendations will be

posted at the Buffalo County

website.

When will a determination be

made on my protest?

The BOE by statute, can meet

from and after June 1, 2020, to and

through July 25, 2020, to consider

tax valuation protests, all done in

public meetings. After the BOE re-

ceives a recommendation from the

referees the BOE will review the ev-

idence and recommendations of

the referees. The BOE will either

approve those recommendations or

make a different value finding. Noti-

fication of the BOE's action will be

mailed within ten (10) days of their

final decision.

What if I don't agree with the BO-

E's determination on my protest?

If you are not satisfied with the

BOE's valuation determination, you

may file an appeal to the State Tax

Equalization and Review Commis-

sion (TERC). You can use this

website as an aid: https://terc.n-

ebraska.gov/appeal-process
