2018 county assessments released


April 18, 2018

Green River’s residents can expect to see the county’s 2018 Notice of Value statements this week.

The statements, according to Sweetwater County Assessor David Divis, are what are used to determine property tax statements, which will be mailed in September.

A release from Divis states residents who have signed up for the eNotice program will receive their statements Wednesday.

According to the release, home values are set by calculating the new replacement cost, subtracting the depreciation and then trending for sales. The Wyoming Department of Revenue provides the cost data to the 23 county assessors in the state, which was collected during the 2017 calendar year. Divis’ release states a slight increase in the cost tables took place during the year.

“There was an increase in residential sales prices which will contribute to an increase in values for the coming year,” Divis’ release states.

In Sweetwater County, there were 492 valid residential sales with a median sale price of $257,721.

Commercial properties also saw a small increase in value over the past few years.

Residents disagreeing with their property assessments can discuss the issue with Divis up to 30 days after the sent date on their assessment.

Residents receiving the veteran’s exemption who do not have a value on the lower right hand corner of the notice should contact the assessor’s office by May 22 to receive the exception for 2018.

Taxes on the notice don’t reflect the exemption.

Anyone with questions or concerns can call the assessor’s office at 872-3700 or stop by the office, located at the Sweetwater County Courthouse.
