The City contracts its property assessment services with Associated Appraisal.
The Assessor's primary responsibility is to determine the fair market value of property. This ensures taxpayers contribute a fair share of support for the community services received.
For these services to continue, other agencies, as well as the City, must levy taxes. The other taxing jurisdictions include the Evansville Community School District, Rock County, and Blackhawk Technical College. State laws define the powers of these taxing jurisdictions and the kinds of properties that are exempt from taxes. Taxes levied by these other jurisdictions are included in the annual tax bill for properties in the City.
If you have a question with your property, support staff is standing by 8-4 pm Monday-Friday to answer your questions.
The assessor has completed a revaluation of all taxable property in the municipality for the current year. The last time the City of Evansville has had a revaluation was sixteen years ago, in 2006. The purpose of the revaluation is to establish new assessed values for all property, on a fair and equitable basis, at 100% market value.
If you have any questions concerning your valuation, there will be an Open Book session held by Associated Appraisal Consultants where you can meet with the assessor individually to discuss your concerns. Please call Associated Appraisal Consultants at 920-749-1995 for an Open Book appointment. Please have this assessment notice with you during your Open Book appointment.
