Department of Tax Equalization Begins Reappraisal Project

Posted: Updated:

The Ward County Department of Tax Equalization has coordinated a reappraisal of all commercial property throughout the county.

The reappraisal project includes door to door inspection of all commercial properties and will begin around July 7. The purpose of the project is to equalize property assessments so that each taxpayer is paying their fair share in property tax.

“We have gone through a few different tax directors in the past five to six years, so I’m positive that there have been building permits that have been issued, missed and haven't been assessed. That’s a big part of the reason we’re going out there. To get updates on all of this property,” says Pam Axtman a tax director for Ward County.

The Ward County Tax Director's office doesn't have the resources to complete the project in a timely manner, so they have partnered with Vanguard Appraisals. Each Vanguard representative will have a photo ID to identify themselves.
