Accurate is contracted by the Village of Vernon to set fair and equitable property values. From time to time you may receive letters in the mail to verify property information. You will also receive mail from the assessor if there is an adjustment made to your property value due to a recent permit, a sale of a property, or a re-assessment of the entire community. The assessor uses open market sales to adjust all property in the city to market value every other year.
2023 Interim Market Update
The village is required by state statutes to maintain assessed values within 10% of fair market value. When assessed values fall below 90% or above 110% of market value, determined by the state using valid market sales, an interim market update is needed to bring property assessments into compliance with state statutes.
The last market updated was completed in 2020. Since then market values have changed and assessed values in the village are no longer in compliance. Assessors will use recent market sales (up to January 1, 2023) to determine new assessed values throughout the village.
You will receive a notice of new value in July, 2023. After you receive your notice the Open Book period will begin and you will have an opportunity to set an appointment online and provide your evidence to the assessor such as a recent appraisal or major conditional issues with your property.
Keep in mind that assessors do not set tax rates, it is their job to use proven market data to help them determine the market value of properties and set fair and equitable assessments.
After speaking with an assessor, if you with to contest your assessed value you can sign up for the Board of Review. This is a court-like setting in which you can provide evidence to the board to contest your assessment. Objection form and information is provided above.
