What are the basic data collection procedures for reassessments?

The Assessor’s office utilizes the following data and procedures:

  • Each improvement on a parcel is physically measured and routinely checked for accuracy. Building permits, aerial photography, sale validations, and physical inspections related to construction are used in this process.
  • Ancillary data checks are used, including appraisals, real estate data, citizen requests, and inter-governmental field visits.  
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data such as zoning, road access, location and neighborhoods is verified.
  • Sales data is validated, qualified and coded according to condition of the property at the time of sale.
