What happens after a referee hearing?

Following the review of all information submitted, referee recommendations will be finalized and presented to the Board of Equalization. Protest results can be accessed on the County Clerk's website in early August. You will need to know the protest number and parcel identification number in order to search values.

The Lancaster County Board of Equalization will take final action on or before August 10 on all property valuations which were protested. You will then receive written notice of your final valuation for the current year.
