The Notice of Assessment Form 11's were mailed on April 30, 2019. Taxpayers will have until June 17, 2019 (45 days) to appeal.
During statewide reassessments, county assessors physically inspect each property to ensure that records are correct. Inspection accomplishes the gathering of data to value the property. For example, does the property still have a free-standing garage and an above ground pool? By confirming this information, assessors can ensure properties are properly valued. Assessing officials will re-assess approximately 25% of the parcels in their jurisdiction (by property class codes) commencing May 1 to December 31 each year over a four year time frame.
