Now! We have information available to search online. This information includes taxes, ownership, legals, and values. We have building information including year built, square footage, etc., and photos and sketches if available.
There are a few reasons we do site visits to property. One of the main reasons is if we have gotten a building permit or seen that you are building something new on your land, such as a home or garage / shop. Field appraisers are out all year round measuring new construction.
Another reason we may be at your property is because of reviews. The state requires that we physically review every property in the county at least once every four years. To make this more time efficient we visit 1/4 of the county each year.
We are also required to verify ownership of all mobile homes every year. If we cannot reach an owner by phone we will drive to the home and speak to them or leave a door hanger for them to call us.
Finally we will come out to your house if you request it during appeals time. We would do this if you believed that we had the home valued too high or low and wanted to show us what defects or improvements would affect the value, that we may have missed.
You have to sign up by the fourth Monday in May of the current tax year. Make sure your mailing address is current with our office and a reminder letter is mailed after January 1. You may call our office or come in to sign the card every year.
Tax notices usually get mailed out in September, although state statutes say that they can be mailed anytime before October 10. You cannot pay your taxes early unless you are moving a mobile home or transferring title on a mobile home. There are a few options for when you can pay your taxes. The first half is due September 1 of the current tax year but not delinquent until after November 10. The second half is due March 1 of the next tax year but not delinquent until May 10. You also have the option of paying all taxes by December 31 of the current tax year without penalties.
