Some property owners in Wilson, Wyoming and the Teton County neighborhoods of Polo Ranches and River Meadows may soon see revised property tax bills in the coming weeks. Teton County Assessor Dawn Johnson said several issues were revealed last spring that led to the corrections.
She said the accuracy of assessments has been affected by the lack of inventory of home sales in prior years, a very unsettled market in 2011, changing neighborhood dynamics, and human error.
In addition to addressing this year’s corrections, Johnson is also evaluating the circumstances that led to the errors to ensure the issues have been addressed for future assessments. “While none of us like to get our tax bill, it is imperative that landowners understand how their assessed property value is determined and are confident that their property tax is accurate. I am committed to do whatever is necessary to provide that assurance.”
