  • How can I determine if the new assessment is fair?

    Posted by:

    As you review the new assessed value, your primary question should be “Is this the price for which I could sell my property?” If you answer yes to this question, your new assessed value is more than likely fair. Your assessment should represent 100% of the July 1, 2019 market value. Taxpayers can look for sales of comparable properties to obtain the answer to this question.
