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

When a complaint is filed, the Board of Revision will schedule a hearing to consider any testimony or evidence presented; then they will issue their decision on whether an adjustment should be made to the property valuation. The board does not hear complaints regarding real estate taxes.
