2022 Property Revaluation
The Town of Lodi will be performing a market revaluation in 2022. The last time the Town of Lodi performed a revaluation of all property was in 2008, about 14 years ago. Since then, market values have changed and assessed values no longer reflect the current market.
The state of Wisconsin is a Market Value state and requires each municipality to be within 10% of market value. Property values are required to mirror the fair market value of comparable properties to ensure property owners are paying their fair share of taxes. Lodi will be performing a revaluation to maintain compliance with state statutes and bring all assessed values in the town back to fair market value.
The fair market value of all property is calculated by reviewing arm’s length sales between a willing seller and a willing buyer. Assessors will be reviewing market sales up to January 1, 2022. Sales after the new year will not be used to determine your 2022 assessed value. The property tax bill you receive in December of 2022 will be based on the new assessment value of your property.
Assessors don’t set tax rates. The assessor’s job is to use comparable market data to set fair and equitable assessed values. The town and other taxing entities cannot use assessed values to increase the amount taxes collected. Referendums, police & fire services, and other municipal services determine the amount of tax that needs to be collected.

Timeline of Revaluation (to be determined):
Jan – March: Assessors review new construction and permits
Trespass letter will be sent to properties assessors need to visit
Feb - March: recent sales are verified, and market data is reviewed
April - May: Comparable market data used to revalue all property
July-Aug: Notice of new value will be mailed to you
Assessment Review: A conference with an assessor to discuss the value of your property. You can contact the assessor from the time you receive your notice all the way up until 48 hours before Board of Review to discuss your new value. When available you can set an appointment with an assessor here: https://accurate.rovingcalendar.com/appointments
Board of Review: Functions like court and is required to evaluate evidence based on facts. You or your representative must provide factual evidence that your property is inequitably assessed. The burden of proof is solely on the taxpayer. The assessor’s value is presumed correct by State Law until proven otherwise.
