CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cuyahoga County Board of Revision is suspending operations effective at the close of business on March 19, 2020. The Board will postpone all hearings scheduled from March 20, 2020 through April 10, 2020. Board staff will notify all parties scheduled for hearings on those dates by regular U.S. mail. The postponement notice will state that the Board will notify parties as soon as the Board sets new hearing dates. For parties who have hearings from March 20, 2020 through March 26, 2020, Board staff will contact parties by telephone or e-mail if that information is available.

The Board of Revision will evaluate whether to postpone hearings set after April 10, 2020 as we receive updated COVID-19 information and directives. If the Board postpones hearings set after April 10, 2020, our staff will send notice by regular U.S. mail approximately two weeks before the hearing dates. We will also update our website. Please check the website for changes.

The annual deadline for filing property-tax appeals is March 31, 2020. This deadline is set by the Ohio Revised Code and cannot be extended without the Ohio General Assembly passing a legislative amendment. Taxpayers are able to file appeals even though the Board of Revision has suspended normal operations. The Board encourages anyone filing an appeal to file electronically. The instructions are available on the Board’s website. For those who cannot or chose not to file electronically, sending by regular U.S. mail is the option the Board recommends after filing electronically. The third option to file is to bring a completed appeal to the County Administration Headquarters. There is a drop-off box at the front entrance. For now, that entrance is open. But that is subject to change. For this reason, the Board advises anyone filing an appeal to avoid the in-person option for filing unless something prevents the filer from using online or mail filing.
