    The Assessor's Office:
    • Discovers, classifies property, and establishes uniform values on all taxable real and personal property.  Our goal is to ensure that the property tax burden is distributed fairly among all property owners.
    • Prepares the annual assessment roll, compiles and submits a number of annual reports to the Department of Revenue, monitors assessment performance, and grants or denies property tax exemption requests.
    • Responsible for maintaining property ownership and legal descriptions on all property in the City.
    • Serves as a informational resource to the community.

The City Assessor does not set nor collect taxes.  The Assessor is only responsible for the equitable distribution of the tax. 

Statutory Authority
Assessed values are established as of January 1 according to Chapter 70 of the Wisconsin Statutes, and each tax assessment is absolute.

Staff Certification
Wisconsin Laws, Chapter 39 (1975) define criteria for staff certification.  Employees must be state certified to legally perform described duties.  Of the 1849 jurisdictions in Wisconsin, 52 require the Assessor II certification, including the City of Manitowoc.
