Please be advised of the following requirements to appear before the Board of Review and procedural
requirements if appearing before the Board:

No person shall be allowed to appear before the Board of Review, to testify to the Board by
telephone or to contest the amount of any assessment of real or personal property if the person has
refused a reasonable written request by certified mail of the Assessor to view such property.

After the first meeting of the Board of Review and before the Board’s final adjournment, no person
who is scheduled to appear before the Board of Review may contact, or provide information to a
member of the Board about the person’s objection except at a session of the Board.

No person may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board by telephone or contest the
amount of the assessment unless, at least 48 hours before the first meeting of the Board or at
least 48 hours before the objection is heard if the objection is allowed because the person has
been granted a waiver of the 48-hour notice of an intent to file a written objection by appearing
before the Board during the first two hours of the meeting and showing good cause for failure to
meet the 48-hour notice requirement and files a written objection, that the person provides to the
clerk of the Board of Review notice as to whether the person will ask for removal of any Board
members and, if so, which member will be removed and the person’s reasonable estimate of the length
of time that the hearing will take.

When appearing before the Board of Review, the person shall specify, in writing, the person’s
estimate of the value of the land and of the improvements that are the subject of the person’s
objection and specify the information that the person used to arrive at that estimate.

No person may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board by telephone or object to a
valuation; if that valuation was made by the Assessor, or the Objector using the income method of a
valuation; unless the person supplies the Assessor all the information about income and expenses,
as specified in the Assessor’s manual under Sec. 73.03(2a) of Wis. Statutes, that the Assessor
requests. The Village of River Hills has an ordinance for the confidentiality of information about
income and expenses that is provided to the Assessor under this paragraph which provides
exceptions for persons using information in the discharge of duties imposed by law or the duties of
their office or by order of a court. The information that is provided under this paragraph, unless
a court determined that it is inaccurate, is not subject to the right of inspection and copying
under Sec. 19.35(1) of Wis. Statutes.

The Board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the Board
a letter from a physician, surgeon or osteopath that confirms their illness or disability. No other
persons may testify by telephone.
