About The BTA


The Washington State Legislature created the Board of Tax Appeals in 1967 as an independent state agency.  It is not part of, or associated with, any other state or county agency.

The Board maintains public confidence in the state tax system by providing taxpayers and taxing authorities with an accessible, fair, and efficient process for resolving appeals.

The Board issues comprehensive written decisions based upon generally accepted appraisal practices, Washington statutes and the state constitution, case law, and Board precedents, and is committed to fairly and impartially resolving all appeals brought before it.
