Ohio Supreme Court rules that a fundamental requirement to a Board of Revision Complaint is … proof of filing the Complaint

In this case, an unfortunate taxpayer obtained a savings on the valuation of its property of more than $1 million (about $25,000 per year in tax savings) in a proceeding before his local Ohio Board of Revision, but it appears he could not prove he actually filed a Complaint.

Result: the Ohio Supreme Court tossed the Board of Revision decision, and the taxpayer lost his previously “won” savings.

Two very simple lessons to be learned as a result of this experience:

1) File your complaint on time and in person (by March 31 of each year); and

2)  Get a keep a date-stamped copy on the filing so you can prove it was timely filed.
