As you may know, Monroe County has contracted with Tyler Technologies, Inc., CLT Appraisal Services to conduct a reassessment project to correct unfair property assessments. When Monroe last updated property assessments in 1989, the national cost of a gallon of gas was $.97 and the U.S. postage stamp was $.25. With such an out-of-date system, it is possible for property owners with similar houses to pay different amounts of property tax. By conducting a reassessment, Monroe County is expecting to change from an out-of-date, unequal assessment system to a system based on current, accurate property values.
Property owners will be receiving tentative assessment disclosure notices on March 1, 2019. Follow the instructions on the informal notice to review your tentative property value and schedule an informal review if necessary.
