The Board of Equalization.
An act of the Legislature of 1007
provides that the County Judge, County
Clerk and Assessor of the several coun
ties of this state shall constitute thu
Board of Equalization to exumine mi l
correct the assessment rolls returned
by the Assessors in their several coun
ties, and to increase or reduce the valu
ation of the properly therein assessed,
so that the same shall bo full cash value
thereof aud to assess omitted taxable
''The board shall meet at the court-hnu-H
in the several counties on the
thiid .Monday of October iu each year,
ami the County Clerk shall lay before
the Board the assessment rolls returned

week it is by law required to be in
session, and uny petition or application
not so made, verified and filed shall m t
be considered or acted upou by too
Section 6 of the Act provides, "That
ald Board of Equalization shall con
tinue its sessions from day to duy,
exclusive of Siiudavsand legal holiday.,
until the examination and correction
uud equalization of the assessment rolls
shall be completed; but it shall com
plete said examination, correction ami
equalization, within one mouth from
the time it U by law required to meet,
and, unless sooner completed, at the
expiration of one mouth from the time
the Board Is herein required to meet,
the examination, correction and equal
ization of said assessment rolls shall he
deemed to be complete."
There is nothing in tho Act which
authorizes the Biard to act after the
expiration of said month, nor is there
any law authorizing them to meet as
such after the expiration of said month,
therefore its work must be completed
within that time.
The Attorney General o( Oregon has
rendered a written opinion in which he
holds th a t Boards of Equalization can
not act as such after the expiration of
said month. .
Under the law as it no exists the
County Court has no power at all to
lower or Increase assessments on the
tux rolls or otherwise change the rolls
in any way.
