6/29/2015 - Riverside residents: Reevaluation begins next week

Revaluation: The Assessor’s office announced today that property inspectors for the 2015 Revaluation will be starting in the Riverside area next week.  As part of the revaluation process, data collectors will be knocking on doors and asking for a quick interior inspection of the property. Property owners are urged to cooperate with the Vision Appraisal employees, but are not required to do so.

The inspectors will be starting on the Terrace and moving northerly. If the door is not answered they are under contract to check measurements around the house but will not bypass locked gates.  They also carry laser measuring devices, these may appear to some as cameras.  All inspectors carry photo ID, a letter explaining the process signed by the Assessor, and signage on the vehicle that they are working with the Assessor’s office.. Vehicle descriptions and license numbers are recorded with the Assessor’s Office and the Police Department.  Residents with questions should call the Assessor’s Office at 435-7574.

At the conclusion of the process in early 2016 residents will receive a letter stating the valuation for tax purposes.  Informal hearings will be held by appointment for those wishing more information about their valuation.
