The Board is pleased to announce that Ohio Governor DeWine has lifted many of the health and safety 
restrictions on Ohio’s boards and commissions beginning in mid-July. As a consequence, the Board will fully 
resume in-person hearings as of August 2, 2021. The Board remains grateful to taxpayers and taxing authorities 
for their patience as all government agencies have navigated the past year.

The Board has extensively reviewed its docket over the past month to formulate a transition plan. The Board 
has received many comments over the past month on how best to resume in-person hearings on a regular basis. 
Having considered those comments, the Board finds it equitable to prioritize hearings for cases filed before 
January 1, 2021. The Board’s goal is that all such cases will receive an in-person hearing before January 1, 
2022.

To that end, parties should review any cases scheduled for hearing between August 2021 to January 2022. 
Continuances may be granted but only for good cause shown. If a continuance is requested, parties should 
propose specific hearing dates for a hearing to be held before January 2022. If no continuance is timely 
received, the Board will determine if it has the resources to hear all cases for a given week, beginning August 2, 
2021. If the Board is able, all hearings for those weeks will be held. If the Board lacks the resources to hear 
those cases, older cases will be prioritized and newer cases will be continued to a date certain.

Again, the Board remains grateful for the flexibility and patience of taxpayers and taxing authorities. The Board 
will continue to update parties with new developments
