Taxable Value by Property Type

Each year the county assessor develops the valuation of real property based upon sales analyses of all three major property types.  Values are reported to the Nebraska Department of Revenue, Property Assessment Division (PAD) by March 19.  The level of value and the quality of assessment is measured by the PAD.  The Property Tax Administrator reports all measurement statistics to the Nebraska Tax Equalization and Review Commission (TERC).  TERC may order the county assessor to adjust property class or property subclass values by a percentage after due notice of a show cause hearing.  The county assessor must comply with TERC orders in a timely manner and mail valuation change notices to property owners by June 1.  PAD audits assessment records to verify that TERC orders have been implemented.  Possible consequences for noncompliance include, but are not limited to, the assessor’s certificate being revoked for a period of five years.
