YOU HAVE AN AVENUE OF APPEAL IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THE NOTICE

Officials at the assessors office say if you disagree with the determined value you can appeal the valuation to the Board of Equalization.

IT'S LIKELY YOU'LL SEE AN INCREASE IN VALUE

“Yakima County had a vibrant real estate market in 2022, and the 2023 market, while slower, is continuing to show increases in value. A quick way to verify what prices are doing on an individual property basis is to compare the change in # of sales with the change in volume."

QUESTION? TATE SAYS JUST CONTACT HIS OFFICE 574-1100

Tate says they use a lot of current market information to determine market values but he says they may not always have all the information for each property or sale. He urges you to contact the office if you feel your value is incorrect "we do not set market value, we interpret it through sales that have already occurred and are always required to look backward."
