Board of Review

about the board

The Board is comprised of five citizens of the City appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Council. This board meets annually to review the Assessment Rolls as prepared by the Assessor, and make any corrections as necessary. They also hold a hearing for any property owner's objection to their assessment to determine if an adjustment is necessary or justified. Each member is held to conduct the Board of Review according to the WI Department of Revenue Guide for Board of Review Members

Property Assessment

The City Clerk conducts the annual Board of Review. Wisconsin State Statues 70.46-70.48 allows a property owner to object to the assessment placed on their real estate or personal property. The property owner must file an objection form (PDF) with the City Clerk who schedules an appointment with the Board. 

The City of Ashland underwent a revaluation process, 2021 being the final year. Revaluation is the process of assessing property values that uses current market value to replace antiquated an inequitable assessment rolls. Despite popular belief, the process is revenue neutral, meaning that municipalities do not gain any additional tax revenue. The end goal is a fair distribution of the tax burden. 

The Assessor is responsible for assessing and valuing all Real and Personal Property according to Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 70. Associated Appraisal Consultants, Inc. of Appleton, WI has serviced the City of Ashland since 2016. Their website houses all of their clients' assessment rolls and other information to assist the property owner. The assessor and staff assess all new construction, improvements being remodeled, partially completed improvements, all properties in which buildings have been destroyed or moved, and all properties which the original parcel has been split into two or more parcels.  All property records are updated and property records are made for new parcels.

The Assessor completes all forms as required by the Department of Revenue, including final reports and TID reports, and the Department of Agriculture by the Assessor is completed. The Statement of Assessment is completed by the Ashland County Land Description office and electronically with the State.
