Reminder: Manufactured home and co-op spreadsheets

If you haven’t done so already, complete and send your manufactured home or co-op spreadsheets immediately.

Equalization rate update for May 1 and June 1 tentative roll munis

We’ve begun making equalization rates, and we urge you to keep the following in mind:

  • Tentative roll. If you published your tentative roll on May 1, and you haven’t sent it to us or posted it online, please do so immediately. The deadline is today. If you will publish your roll on June 1, please send us your roll and post it online as soon as possible. 
  • Get your rate. We’ll email your rate to you (and the county director) as soon as it’s made. (We’ll also post it online the following day.)
  • If ORPTS accepts the LOA as the equalization rate: The rate will immediately become final. ORPTS will not issue a tentative rate. 
  • If ORPTS doesn’t accept the LOA as the rate: The assessor is required by law to provide notices to the local governing body of any affected:
    • town, 
    • city,
    • village,
    • county, and 
    • school district.

The assessor must provide the notice within ten days of the receipt of the tentative equalization rate, or within ten days of the filing of the tentative assessment roll, whichever is later. 

The notice will provide the difference in the indicated total full value estimates of the locally stated level of assessment and the tentative equalization rate for the taxable property within each affected jurisdiction listed above.
