How is my real estate assessed?

Every nine years a full revaluation is performed in which the appraisal company values each and every parcel in the city.  All real estate is measured and listed  which consists of measuring the exterior along with a full inspection of the interior.  The next full revaluation will be conducted for 12/31/17 for tax year 2018.

Every three years a statistical revaluation is conducted.  During a statistical revaluation, all properties which were sold within the previous year or have had physical changes made are measured and listed.  All other properties in the City are field reviewed.  The tables in the mass appraisal system are updated to reflect the current market.

The tax bills for this year (tax year 2016) reflect the results of the statistical revaluation performed as of December 31, 2014.  The online database is updated with new values and ownership as of December 31, 2015.  The next revaluation will be in 2017 for the 2018 tax year.  The city currently contracts with Vision Government Solutions for real estate revaluation services.
