Welcome to the 2024 Board of Review (BOR) Training

Wisconsin law requires that in 2024, before the First Two-hour Meeting, at least one member of the BOR must attend a training session approved by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue within one year of the BOR’s first meeting, see Wis. Stats. §§ 70.46(4) and 73.03(55). However, we recommended that all BOR members meet the training requirement by viewing a video and taking the exam.
