UNDERSTANDING YOUR ASSESSMENT

Why am I receiving an assessment notice?

On an even year such as this, the main reason for a change in value is because of new construction or demolition.  Countywide revaluations (based on market sales) are done in odd years only.  There could have been some slight revaluation to your property value due to other circumstances.  Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions about why your valuation changed.

I disagree with my value.  What can I do?

  • If you do not believe your value is current market value, your first option might be to request to have the assessor do an informal review of your property.  In this case, an appointment would be made with a field appraiser and a possible new value could be agreed upon, all without having to go through the formal protest process with the Board of Review.  To set up an informal review, you must contact the assessor's office between April 2 and April 25, with the final value being agreed upon and the form signed by the 25th.
  • If you do not believe your value is current market value, you may choose to protest with the county Board of Review.  In this case, a petition form would be filed with the Board of Review in the assessor's office, and you would have the option to have an oral hearing before the Board or to simply have them review any information you turn in with the petition.  Petition forms are available in the assessor's office or online on the Marion County Website (www.marioncountyiowa.gov) or the Iowa Department of Revenue website (https://tax.iowa.gov).  Petitions must be timely filed with the Board of Review in the assessor's office between April 2 and April 30.

Where can I find more information?

All property records are available to the public.  You may access any property information by going to the assessor's website at www.marion.iowaassessors.com or the county website at www.marioncountyia.org.  From there you can search properties by deedholder, address, or parcel number.
