2021 Important Dates


Open Book
 
For your safety, the Assessor is conducting Open Book meetings only by phone or email, rather than conducting in-person meetings. Open Book is scheduled for Monday, May 24, 2021 from 10 am to 12 pm. Outside of the scheduled Open Book time period, Property owners are encouraged to reach out to the Assessor during their regular business hours (Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM). You may call any time after receiving an assessment notice or after reviewing the assessment roll, but no later than 3 days prior to the Board of Review to conduct your Open Book meeting.

If the assessor is not available at the time of your call, they will make every effort to return your call within 24 hours. When leaving a message please provide your name, phone number, the Municipality in which the property is located, and the Parcel ID number or Tax Key Number from your assessment notice or tax bill.

Board of Review
Board of Review is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, June 8th, 2021 at 5:00 PM at the Waunakee Public Library, 201 N Madison Street, Waunakee, Wisconsin. The deadline for providing notice of intent to object to the Village Clerk's office is 5:00 PM on Friday, June 4, 2021. It is recommended that you attend Open Book to discuss your property's assessment value with the assessor prior to appearing before the Board of Review. If you are not satisfied with your assessment value, you will need to make arrangements with the Village Clerk's office to appear before the Board of Review. You must provide the Village Clerk with written or oral notice of your intent to file an objection at least 48 hours before the first scheduled meeting of the Board of Review. In addition, a written and signed form of objection to property assessment must be completed and filed with the Village Clerk's office within the first 2 hours of the Board of Review's first scheduled meeting. Please click here for an Objection form. You must object to the total value of the property. You may not object to only the land value or only the improvement value. The Board of Review will be in session for a minimum of 2 hours, will reconvene as necessary, and will adjourn when all objections, complete and timely filed, are heard.
