j erty is placed on the books and
* valued uniformly. If some prup
-1 erty is placed on tne books at
j a fraction of value, far below
(other property, it means not
’only that it gets a partial free
rate, but also that its equitable
share of the tax burden is shift- j
ed to other property. You can:
see that with the heavy financial!
burden counties carry, we can-'
not afford either to exempt i
property or to undervalue it. <
Tax Listing and Assessing
Perhaps a brief mention of
property tax listing and assess
ing will help you understand
how it works.
Each board of county com
missioners appoints a county tax
supervisor. The tax supervisor*
is responsible for the listing and
assessing of property for pur
poses of taxation. In December
of each year, the tax supervisor,
with the approval of the board
of county commissioners, ap
points list takers for each town
ship. Every person owning
property must appear before the
list taker in his township in
January and give the list taker
an itemized list of all real and
. personal property that he owns.
; The list taker, with the help
Jof the taxpayer, determines a
l value for each item of personal
property, attempting to place on
j each item a value equal to com
parable property owned and list
'ed by other taxpayers. Real
i property generally retains the
value placed on it at the time
of the last county-wide valua
tion of all real property. In
case of improvements to realj
property or exceptional circum-1
[stances involving change ini
value, the real property may be
reassessed. Periodically, all real
property is revalued, generally
with the help of expert proper
ty appraisers. No matter who
places a value on his property. l
each taxpayer has the right to
: appeal any decision as to the
value to the board of county
commissioners. The board hears
. these appeals in March of each
, Real Property
[ Let me explain the revalua
[ tion procedure. The 1959 Gen
i eral Assembly provided a brand
■ new revaluation system. The
■ legislation had been thoroughly
1 studied and heartily endorsed by
• our Association, prior to its in- 1
■ traduction. It required each
■ county to revalue real property (
i every eight years. The eight-*
[ year period was fixed with two
■ | things in mind. First, there is
ilthe substantial cost of revalua
■ tion, when done properly. See
l ond. there is the fact that over
a period of years, circumstances
surrounding real property will
i change; some property will in
,l crease in value, while other
property decreases. Without re
valuation. the tax burden shifts
from property that feeromwes un
der valued to property that has
been overvalued. To oounuy of-];
ficials experienced sn the prob
lems of revaluation, and the ne
cessity for it as well as the east.*
the eight-year period snakes
Prior to revaluation, the boun-!
ty 'tax supervisor, subject cf
course to the board ®f (county j
commissioners Which appoints
I him, prepares uniform schedules
jof value. Each parcel off real,
, property must Inc visited fey |
| competent appraisers and valued;
I according to the schedules. This'
i val ue is to be based <om market j
value. A real property record as
to be prepared, showing how the! 1
value of each percel was ar-|
t rived at. Finally, the board pi
county commissioners s»Sects. a.: !
assessment ratio, after corns:..
tion with officials of ciitaes ami*
towns in the countv that
use the lax values fixed : v tr.
county. This assessment rat;t|
I may be 30 per cent. 'B3 v-t ■ j
'SO per cent. 70 pci cent. - _r •*
ratio that the bu: . d f .-
commission*rs chouses It ”. '
then be applied to the an. se. •
value -of all real and p* -- -
property, and the result.r,i . t
ure becomes the vai-m- : *~\?
Let me go back now to
the law calls the .:vn>, ter' |

pie will bo. Some count.!- .
used local people, working .. ter
the supervision "f the tax - .x.-
visor or a professional appr.t.ser.
Many counties, however, h.t'.x
found it hard to find competent
local people. The competes::
ones have their own tv.; .ness; s
which they cannot leave, and|
many hesitate to get involved n
the valuation disputes that off
ten arise. So a large number
of counties in recent years haw
turned to professional apprais* i
These firms employ pe,'-p'.e|
who are usually profess. «a!l\ ■
trained, experienced, and
tial. Sometimes n is s.,id 3 hat
they do not know local prob
lems. But this can fee taken
care of in the development t.f
the uniform schedules of value
that must be used These
schedules can lie developed whtt
the help of advisory cotwr-ittees
composed of local p, pb a,,:.
do know local condn ,n> The
people who serve on advisory
committees do not ge: jnvoiv-.\i
in the valuation of individua
parcels, and as a result, compe
tent local people are often .
ing to serve in thi- c.'.mt,c
on a part-time basis.
How about the cost of . re
valuation? Often it > assumed
that the high cost of rev.
tion comes only with .1 -
ployment of profess:or..*’. a : ; ■
praisal firms. Actually, tr ... r. if
the cost can bo attributed t ■ the
requirement of th« .a»
