I Received a Green Tag.

AAC can answer your property tax assessment questions

Associated Appraisal Consultants (AAC) has been hired by your municipality to assess property values. The advantage of the mass appraisal process is that it produces uniform and consistent appraisal values, which helps to ensure fair and equitable tax distribution. If you received a green tag, that means someone from AAC recently visited your property.

Did You Receive a Green Tag?

Please Schedule an Appointment with One of Our Assessors unless the box “No action is required” is checked.

You may be wondering, “Why did I receive this green tag?” Your town or city hired AAC to perform a revaluation to update all local property values to full market value, and the assessor assigned to your property would like to meet with you to discuss your property.

How is my property assessed?

During the property assessment process, assessors will consider all factors that may affect the value of your property as if offered for sale on the open market. Some of the primary factors include the property’s size, construction type, age, amenities, location and condition. They also must consider fair market value (which is what a typical buyer would pay for the property), as well as historical property data, home inspection findings and market trends, like all recent comparable property sales in your community.

Will this impact my property taxes?

Your property tax bill is based on the assessed value of your property, multiplied by the tax rate (aka “mill rate”) for your taxation district. Property tax rates differ for property owners throughout the state due to various tax levies imposed by municipalities, counties, and school districts.

What Rights Do I Have as a Property Owner?

Property owners in Wisconsin have several rights related to assessments. AAC also takes precautions to ensure your safety if an onsite inspection of your property is desired.

If your municipality has requested that we inspect the interior of your property during a revaluation year, you will receive written a notice before we arrive. You’ll also see our AAC logo clearly displayed on our vehicles, the apparel our team wears and their name tags.

You don’t have to allow us to come inside, but it’s usually to your advantage to ensure accuracy of your property records. Allowing the assessor to view your property will ensure that the assessor is using current and complete information when making a valuation of your property.

You also have a right to appeal an assessment.

At any time of the year, you can request a property value review of your property. You’ll need to complete and submit a form to start the review process.

You can appeal a changed property tax assessment through Open Book and Board of Review meetings. Exact dates for Open Book and Board of Review sessions vary by year and community, and you need to schedule an appointment ahead of time.
