What if I don't have time to gather all the evidence by the petition deadline?

For the purposes of filing a complete appeal, as long as your petition includes sufficient information or statements to apprise the Board and the Assessor of the reasons why you believe the Assessor's determination is incorrect, it is not necessary to include all the evidence you intend to use at your hearing. It is required that items 1 through 5 be completed and petition signed prior to acceptance.

While it is recommended that you provide the evidence you will use as early as possible, additional evidence may be submitted up to 21 business days before your hearing (WAC 458-14-056(5)). Additional evidence must be submitted separately for each petition and each page must include the petition number on the top of the page.
