Douglas County assessor's three-year plan redraws appraisal map

Posted at 1:34 PM, Aug 23, 2017

The Douglas County Assessor's Office has presented the county Board of Equalization with their three-year plan of assessment.

Tuesday, the assessor's office announced some changes to their strategy, like expanding the number of market areas from six to 17.

Property values in Douglas County are based on the rapidly rising housing market. Combine this with outdated property assessments, and some taxpayers saw big increases last year. 

As part of the assessment plan, the Douglas County Assessor's Office will expand the number of districts in hopes that comparing homes with other similar properties in their neighborhood will keep property values fair. 

Information about the appeal process can be found on the BOE's website.
