Board Of Assessors Unveils Website

Are you interested in how much the tax assessors have your property valued for? Are you interested in seeing what all they are taxing on your property and the value of it—swimming pool, decks, docks, out buildings, etc.?

The BOA requested that the county allow them to sign a contract with QPublic for their new website at the last BOC meeting. You can now visit the new website of the BOA. You can find it at:

http://www.jaspercountyboa.org

You can search any property by name, location, or property number. You can view your neighbors property to see if the values are uniform and equitable. You can print out property record cards and even view the location of the property on a map located on each card. Some of the cards provide pictures of the property. The website is excellent!

There are still some inequities in properties. The new Board of Assessors has made several personnel changes, and they seem to have been for the better. The office is working more efficiently and the addition of this website is another plus.

TWG has found several items of interest and people have told us about others. We will send them to you as we work them up. Below is just one example. We have pasted the information from the property record card to show values.

The top picture shows a small wooden dock. This dock is valued at $3710. The bottom picture shows a large, double slip, double decker dock made of metal. This dock is valued at $3610.

This is just one type of inequity that the BOA must work on to value all properties uniformly in the county. The chief appraiser has stated that in preparation for the 2007 digest, the BOA office is reviewing all sales, exempt properties, and lakefront properties.
