2021 Property Revaluation

The Village of Twin Lakes will be performing a market revaluation in 2021. The last time Twin Lakes performed a revaluation of all property was in 2015. Since then, the market has changed and assessed values no longer reflect the current market.

The state of Wisconsin is a Market Value state. This means property values are required to mirror the fair market value of comparable properties to ensure property owners are paying their fair share of taxes.

The fair market value of all property is calculated by reviewing arm’s length sales between a willing seller and a willing buyer on the open market. Assessors consider information from many sources to determine your assessment.

Assessors will be reviewing market sales up to January 1, 2021. Sales after the new year will not be used to determine your new value. The property tax bill you receive in December of 2021 will be based on the new assessment value of your property.

Assessors don’t set tax rates. There are no additional taxes collected by the village during a revaluation. The revaluation does not change the amount of tax collected by the village, county, school district or technical college.

 

Timeline of Revaluation:

Jan – Feb: Assessors review previous year’s sales and market data

Feb- March: Trespass letter will be sent to properties assessors need to visit

March – April: Permits and sales are verified

April – May: Comparable market data used to revalue all property

June – July: Notice of new value will be mailed to you
