Review Process

Information Review

When the property owner comes into the office, the property information is reviewed and checked for accuracy. This includes square footage, construction, finished area, out buildings, etc. Any changes may affect the final market value.

Request for Property Review Only Form

An application should be completed and signed by the property owner. If this form is not completed by the owner/representative, the visit will be considered an informal contact and changes in the property/assessment will not be initiated.

During this review, the property owner may provide any information they would like to have considered such as appraisals, market analysis, special conditions or influences they feel may affect the property value.

The owner must provide an action desired such as their estimate of value as of January 1, of the current year. Statements of “it’s too high” or “it’s wrong” are vague and not definable.

Neighborhood Sales Listings

For residential properties, office staff will review the sales listing for the appropriate neighborhood with the owner and explain the basic neighborhood system. If desired by the owner, a copy of the sales listing for his neighborhood will be provided. Please note that under Wyoming Statute 34-1-142, sales information is not public information and must be kept confidential. Persons receiving sales information may not disclose it to other individuals. Property owners may disclose this information to the County Board of Equalization in conjunction with any hearing. Due to the confidentiality of the sales information it cannot be mailed, electronically transmitted or given over the telephone. Property owners will be provided a copy of the review form.

Notice of Action

Upon completion of the review the property owner will receive, by mail, an amended schedule reflecting updated market value and estimated tax amount, or, notification that no changes have been made, advising them of their option to continue a formal appeal if so desired.
