Establishing Assessed ValuesThe Assessor discovers, lists, and establishes uniform assessed values on all residential, commercial, agricultural, and business personal property. Property values are established as of January 1 of each year. Establishing uniform assessed values ensures that all property in Grand Chute is valued equitably and that the property tax burden is distributed fairly. Wisconsin law requires the Assessor to determine residential, commercial, and agricultural property values based on market value. Market value is defined as the amount a typical, well-informed purchaser would be willing to pay for a property. Farmland is often assessed at use-value, in accordance with Wisconsin law. Business personal property assessments are determined from information provided on the Statement of Personal Property provided by business owners. All manufacturing property is assessed by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. Having the best information on record is an important part of establishing uniform assessed values. Property owners have the right to request an Assessment Review if they can provide new information for the Assessor to review in determining if a value changed is warranted.

Calculating Property TaxesThe Assessor assigns assessed values, but is not involved with establishing the mill rate (tax rate) or collecting property taxes. The mill rate is controlled by the budgets of the municipality, county, school districts, technical college, and the state. More information on Grand Chute's mill rate can be found here.
Open Book and Board of ReviewEach year, the Assessor issues a Notice of Assessment to owners of property if their assessed value has changed from the prior year. Property owners are then provided an opportunity to contest the new value, either informally by meeting with the Assessor during Open Book, or formally by presenting an objection to the Board of Review. Additional information regarding the appeal process can be found in the Property Assessment Appeal Guide.
