Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

The county commissioners at the regular annual equalization meeting, shall consider the classification made pursuant to § 10-10-5, together with the value placed upon each tract of land and the value of the improvements thereon, and may, for good cause shown, change such classification and value thereon as may be just, and shall make such equalization thereof between the various townships as is now provided by law therefor. The valuations placed upon such lands shall become the basis for taxation purposes subject only to any change that may be made under the law by the Office of Hearing Examiners in equalizing property valuations between the different classes of property in the various counties of the state. However, the Office of Hearing Examiners may not in any way raise the total valuation of such property within the state.
