TAXABLE VALUE by PROPERTY TYPE

Each year the county assessor develops the valuation of real property based upon sales analyses of all three major property types.  Values are reported to the Nebraska Department of Revenue, Property Assessment Division (PAD) by March 19.  The level of value and the quality of assessment is measured by the PAD.  The Property Tax Administrator reports all measurement statistics to the Nebraska Tax Equalization and Review Commission (TERC).  TERC may order the county assessor to adjust property class or property subclass values by a percentage after due notice of a show cause hearing.  The county assessor must comply with TERC orders in a timely manner and mail valuation change notices to property owners by June 1.  PAD audits assessment records to verify that TERC orders have been implemented.  Possible consequences for noncompliance include, but are not limited to, the assessor’s certificate being revoked for a period of five years.

 

Sales occurring within specific date ranges per property type are studied each year. The 2015 values were developed and compared to sales as follows:

Personal Property and Real Property Tax Lists are completed by the county assessor and delivered to the county treasurer, with a warrant commanding the treasurer to collect the tax, by November 22 each year.

 

The county assessor serves a 4-year elected term and must be certified by successfully passing an examination before filing for office.  The exam is conducted by the Nebraska Property Tax Administrator.  Certificate-holders must maintain continuing education hours, as prescribed by the Property Tax Administrator, during each four-year term.

 

For an overview of the duties of the county assessor click on “CALENDAR” in the link for Nebraska Property Assessment and Taxation.  Within that link, you will also find statutes, regulations, directives, forms, information guides and other topics regarding the assessor’s office and property taxation.

 

Contact the assessor’s office for assessment-related information.

The County Assessor also maintains pages for the Dundy “County Board of Equalization” on Dundy County Online.
