On Monday, the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners met as the county board of tax equalization and started reviewing property tax protests.

About 210 people protested their property tax valuations this year, considerably less than recent years.

Over the last five years, between 400-1,000 Lincoln County property owners protested their valuations, according to county records.

In 2017, there were 597 protests filed. And, most of them – 439 or 73% — resulted in a lower valuation, according to the county clerk’s records.

A year ago, there were 391 protests.

Property tax protests must be filed during the month of June. The board reviews each of the protests in July.
