Assessment of Property Values
The Village assessor is responsible for discovering, listing, and applying values to all taxable property, both real and personal, in the Village of Big Bend. The assessor values property as of January 1 of each year. This value is in accordance with the highest and best use permitted under existing zoning and building codes. The Village currently contracts with Associated Appraisals, LLC. for Assessment services. You may contact Associated Appraisals by calling 920-749-1995 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Change in my AssessmentWhenever the assessor changes the total assessment of any real property or any improvements taxed as personal property by any amount, the owner must be notified in writing and mailed at least 15 days prior to the Board of Review meeting.
If you disagree with the assessment, you should first arrange to meet with the Village Assessor to examine your assessment records. When you meet with your assessor, review the records for your property and discuss how your assessment was made. If you are unable to meet privately with your assessor, you should attend the “open book.” “Open book” refers to a period of time before Board of Review when the completed assessment roll is open for examination.
- 2023 Open Book is August 15th 1:00pm to 5:00pm. See notice.
2023 Board of Review
If you are still not satisfied, Property owners can appeal their assessment to the Board of Review as follows:
- Provide the Village Clerk with a written or oral notice of intent to file an objection 48 hours prior to the start of the Board of Review.
- Complete and file with the Clerk the proper objection form. It is recommended that objectors complete and file this form at the same time they provide their notice of intent.
- Property owners that do not provide the Village Clerk with a 48 hour notice of intent are required to appear in person within the first two hours of the Board of Review’s meeting and explain to the Board why proper notice was not provided. The Board of Review will determine at that time whether or not it will schedule an objection for the 2023 assessment.
