The county tax appeal board is in session from July 1 until Dec. 31 of the current tax year to hear protests concerning assessments made by the Department of Revenue. The board meets until all protest have been considered, and, as provided in MCA 15-2-201, may meet after Dec. 31. Protests are often heard during business hours and require board member participation and dedication during that time.
