Why does value change?
State law requires that all real property be reassessed every 2 years. The current law requires the reassessment to occur in odd numbered years. Changes in market value as indicated by research, sales ratio studies and analysis of local conditions as well as economic trends both in and outside the construction industry are used in determining your assessment.

If you disagree with the Assessors estimate of value, please consider these 2 questions:
  1. What is the actual market value of my property?
  2. How does the value compare to similar properties in the neighborhood?

If you have any questions about the assessment of your property, feel free to come in and discuss it with the Assessor.

You may file a written protest with the Board of Review which is composed of 3 or 5 members from various areas of the assessing jurisdiction. The board operates independently of the Assessor's Office, and has the power to confirm or to adjust upward or downward any assessment.

If you are not satisfied with the decision of the Board of Review you may appeal to district court within twenty days after adjournment of said board, or 20 days after May 31, whichever is the latest.
