State law mandates that every property in the county must be viewed at least once every four years. A visual inspection plan must be submitted to the OTC showing which parcels will be viewed each year.
During a visual inspection we take new pictures of the buildings to keep our files up to date. New buildings are measured and added to the tax roll for the year following discovery.
It has always been my goal to respect the privacy of landowners during the inspection process. When owners are at the location I am always happy to explain more about the valuation process.
It may not be possible to let every owner know exactly what day their property is going to be visited, but we could certainly tell you what cycle year the property is located in.
