Official Change of Appraisal Notice
Will Be Mailed Out Soon
NEMRC has completed an update of all real property values in Monkton as of April 1, 2017. Over the past two years we have reviewed the properties and entered the information into a computer assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) system. Many changes in property values have occurred since the previous reappraisal, and many properties have undergone substantial physical changes. Values are based on sales over the past three years. Previous assessments are statutorily required for reporting, but have no bearing on the current assessments. Current Use values and Veterans exemptions are not included in the listings.
The tax rate will be set after the completion of formal hearings and after the State finalizes the statewide rates. Do not equate a change in assessment with a change in tax amounts.
Every effort has been made to equitably assess property in Monkton. Please compare your property with similar properties, and with properties that have sold over the past three years.
If property owners have questions or issues with their updated appraisal, the following two step process is available.
