The Summit County Board of Revision reviews complaints about property values.

When a complaint is filed, the Board of Revision will hold a hearing, consider testimony or evidence provided, and issue a decision on whether an adjustment should be made to the property valuation. The board does not hear complaints regarding real estate taxes.
