The City Assessor's office is responsible for the valuation of all real and personal property located within the City of Omro for tax purposes. It is their responsibility to ensure fair and equitable assessments throughout the City of Omro.
The Assessor's office does not set the tax rate, nor raise taxes to cover municipal budgets. The city’s valuation process operates independently of the budget and tax process. The assessment procedure is governed by Chapter 70 of the Wisconsin State Statutes and the Wisconsin Property Assessment Manual. The laws are very specific as to how the work is carried out. The Assessor's Office must be within 10% of market value, as defined by Statute, at least once in every 5 year period. Failure to comply with this requirement would result in a State ordered Reassessment paid for by the local government. It is their intention to use the most advanced assessment procedures to achieve uniformity on a regular basis.
