Reappraisal Questionnaire FAQWhat is the purpose of the reappraisal questionnaire?
To verify the information we have on record for your property is accurate. For example, room count, basement finish, remodel or a recent purchase.
The Utah State Constitution requires ‘property to be taxed at a uniform and equal rate in proportion to its value…’ (Article XIII, Section 2, subsection 1) Reappraisal updates property characteristics which ensures you and your neighbor are treated fairly.
Do I have to let the Assessor’s Office on my property?
No, however, the appraiser is then required to estimate the unseen characteristics in order to value your property.
Are you going to raise my taxes?
The Assessor’s responsibility is to establish a fair market value for each property in the county. This ensures everyone is treated equally so you only pay your fair share of property taxes. As sales occur, the market value of your property may increase or decrease as indicated by those sales. Taxes may increase or decrease based on the market value of your property and the requirements of the taxing entities. Each taxing entity (schools, water/sewer, libraries, municipal government, etc.) provides a service to the citizens of Weber County, which are partially supported through property tax. Each entity has the power to raise revenue through a property tax increase, regardless of the market value of your property.
What if I don’t agree with the new value?
You have the right to appeal within 45 days from the date your valuation notice is sent, or September 15th, whichever is later. For further information on appealing your property value visit the Clerk/Auditor.
