File An Appeal Online or Use a Form

Electronic forms for all appeal types are available to fill out or print at our Forms and Publications page.  Follow the instructions provided with the form and include all requested information and documents with your filing.

You may also file certain appeals through our E-filing portal at the bottom of this page. E-filing is currently available only for property tax valuation appeals.  E-filing is not available for appeals of other actions of a county board.

An electronic filing is not complete without the county board of equalization order that you want to appeal.  If you do not attach the order as part of your electronic filing, your appeal will not be processed unless we receive a copy of that order (by email, fax, or by U.S. mail) within ten calendar days of your electronic filing.

E-filings completed after 5 p.m. or on a weekend are considered received the next business day.   

If your filing is complete and timely, we will send you an acknowledgment letter within 30 days and will schedule your hearing as soon as possible.  Due to the existing appeal backlog, appeals are currently being scheduled between twelve and eighteen months after filing.

If you provide an email address, you agree to receive future correspondence from us by email, including your appeal acknowledgment, your scheduling letter, and your decision. You must keep the Board informed of any change in your email address.

Please add bta@bta.state.wa.us to your spam filters to ensure you receive all email communications from the Board.
