Withdraw a Board of Review appeal

If you filed an appeal with the Board of Review (BOR), you may choose to withdraw your appeal at any time before the Board renders a decision.
A request for withdrawal must be submitted before the Board renders a decision. Once the Board renders its decision, it cannot honor a request to withdraw an appeal.
