The 2019 Ada County Property Tax Assessments Have Arrived.
Unsurprisingly, they indicate a substantial rise in assessed property values for most property owners.
Ada County homeowners can expect their tax bills to increase when local taxing districts apply their levies to the new, higher assessed values.
It’s important to understand that the assessor’s office does not determine the amount of your property taxes.
Ada County property tax assessments are used by the various taxing agencies to determine the amount of property taxes.
Higher Property Values
Over the past year, the overall Ada County median sales price for a single-family home, on lot or acreage, increased 13.1%.
Some areas of Ada County rose more or less than the countywide number.
Our hot real estate market, with strong demand vs. minimal listing inventory, fueled those rising property values.
The Appeals Process
Homeowners who are unhappy with their new assessed value can file an appeal with the Ada County Board of Equalization.
If you decide to appeal your assessed value, be prepared to provide proof that the assessor erred in determining your new assessed value.
If the assessor used incorrect data for major assessment criteria, such as land size, bedrooms, baths, square footage, comparable sales, or other significant criteria, you might have a chance of getting an adjustment.
The assessor’s office will not agree to a lower assessed value just because you don’t like their value.
