The Assessor's office has completed the City wide revaluation for 2018. The Board of Review has adjourned for the 2018 assessment year. If you have any questions regarding your value we can review your property for 2019. Please fill out our value concern form below to initiate this process.
Purpose of Revaluations
A revaluation is the process of revaluing all taxable real and personal property in a municipality for the purpose of creating equitable assessments at market value. The State of Wisconsin requires assessments to be within 10% of full value (market value) at least once in a four year period. The primary reasons for revaluation include.
- Bringing current assessments within statutory guidelines
- Eliminating inequities that may exist in the assessments of property
Uniformity, equity and fairness are the core reasons for conducting revaluations.
During a non-revaluation year the Assessor's office accounts for assessment changes due to new construction, land splits, combinations, remodeling, and permit related activity. See the following link Click here to verify your Detailed Property Assessment Data.
The Assessor does not: Calculate the taxes, collect the taxes, choose the tax rate, or set policy for the Board of Review. The Assessor is concerned with value, not taxes. The taxes you pay are proportionate to the value of your property compared to the total value of the taxing district in which your property is located.
The mission of the assessor’s office is to list and value all taxable property within the City of West Bend in accordance with Chapter 70 of the Wisconsin Statutes.
