KEO RENTAL, L.L.C., APPELLEE,
VAN BUREN COUNTY BOARD OF REVIEW, APPELLANT.
On review from the Iowa Court of Appeals. Interlocutory review from the Iowa District Court for Van Buren County, Joel Yates, Judge.
Property owner seeks further review from court of appeals decision reversing the district court's ruling that it had substantially complied with the statutory requirements for a property-assessment protest.
COURT OF APPEALS DECISION VACATED; DISTRICT COURT JUDGMENT AFFIRMED; AND CASE REMANDED.
This is the companion interlocutory review with facts that mirror MC Holdings, L.L.C. v. Davis County Board of Review, ___ N.W.2d ___ (Iowa 2013), decided today. Keo Rental argues the court of appeals erred in reversing the decision of the district court, which held that Keo Rental substantially complied with the requirements for a property-assessment protest set forth in Iowa Code section 441.37 (2009). Based on the reasoning in MC Holdings, we vacate the decision of the court of appeals and affirm the district court's order that denied summary judgment to the Van Buren County Board of Review. We remand this case to the district court for further proceedings.
COURT OF APPEALS DECISION VACATED; DISTRICT COURT JUDGMENT AFFIRMED AND CASE REMANDED.
All justices concur except Waterman, Mansfield, and Zager, JJ., who dissent.
This decision shall not be published.
