New Procedure Adopted by the Value Adjustment Board, Timeframe for Request for Legal Review: At the January 12, 2015 Value Adjustment Board (VAB) meeting, the Board approved a new procedure to set a timeframe for petitioners to submit a request for a legal review of Special Magistrates' worksheets by the VAB Attorney.  The Board determined that a petitioner must provide its written concerns as to where the petitioner feels the Special Magistrate made a legal error when making his/her decision.  A petitioner must file the request for legal review to the VAB within 30 calendar days from the date that the worksheet is mailed.  This policy is effective immediately, beginning with the 2014 tax cycle.  Requests may be emailed to .
