Property owners are encouraged to attend Open Book if they have any questions on how their assessment was determined and the factors that were taken into consideration in arriving at your assessment. Examples of some of these are: sales of comparable properties, current construction costs, improvements to property, location, depreciation, legal restrictions such as Zoning ordinances and general economic changes in the Community.
Assessors can change property values for all non-manufacturing properties up until Board of Review if they agree your value needs to be adjusted.
Property Assessment Information:
The2016 Guide for Property Owners and the 2016 Property Assessment Appeal Guide for Wisconsin Real Property Owners are important publications from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue, Division of State & Local Finance, Bureau of Assessment Practices. The publications contain information on property assessments, taxation, values, taxes, appeals, property tax bills, etc.
Board of Review:
The Board of Review is a formal, quasi-judicial process for appealing the assessment of real and personal property. The Board of Review receive sworn testimony and evidence, from both the protesting property owner and the Assessor, and make a determination on the validity of the facts presented, under oath, before it. The Assessor's value is presumed to be correct and is changed only if the Board of Review determines that the sworn testimony and evidence presented by the protesting property owners proves otherwise. Board of Review is by appointment only.
Please complete the PA-115a to contest your property value (your home or business improved value) and submit to the Edgerton City Hall at least 48 hours prior to Board of Review. To contest the value of your personal property (boat and other watercraft, machinery tools and patterns, furniture, fixtures and equipment, etc), please complete the PA-115b and submit to the Edgerton City Hall at least 48 hours prior to Board of Review. Once the forms have been provided to the Edgerton City Hall, you will be scheduled for an appointment time for Board of Review.
Please note: Once the Board of Review has adjourned for the year, your property value cannot be changed!
If you have any questions regarding the Board of Review process, please call the Edgerton City Hall at 608-884-3341
