REVALUATION FAQ 2023

(For the 2023 revaluation)

“What is a revaluation?”

A revaluation, or reappraisal, is an updating of tax values to bring them back in line with the current sale price of properties.

“Are you revaluing everyone or just me?”

The revaluation includes every parcel in the county.

“How often do you do this?”

We have historically performed a revaluation every eight years, however this revaluation is set just six years from our last one. Future revaluations will be performed every four years. This transition means that tax values will be more accurate and up-to-date.

“When was the last revaluation?”

January 1st, 2017.

“When will this revaluation take effect?”

January 1st, 2023.

“Is my bill going up?”

When tax values go up, tax rates come down. Those persons who have seen the most growth tend to pay more taxes after a revaluation, while those persons who have seen the least growth tend to pay less taxes after a revaluation. If a revenue neutral tax rate is used, then the average property owner will pay about the same amount of taxes as they did before the revaluation. More about this below…

“Do you have to do this?”

The revaluation is State mandated.

“Can I opt out?”

The law does not allow anyone to opt out.

“What if I don’t agree with your results?”

If you feel that your value is incorrect, we would encourage you to appeal using our Online Appeal System or by submitting a paper appeal form.
