A revaluation is a village-wide review of all property assessments. Adjustments are made where necessary to guarantee that all property is assessed at market value. This ensures that taxes are distributed equitably. The State of Wisconsin sets standards that all communities in the State must be valued at 100% of market value or be kept within 10% of that value. As the Village had fallen below these standards, we were out of compliance with State Statutes and were required to complete a revaluation.
Property values are increasing an average of 42%, but lake properties are seeing larger increases. Even though your property value may increase that does not automatically mean taxes will increase. The levy limit for the Village still remains the same.
If you have questions on the value of your property, we request that you call Grota Appraisals at 262-253-1142.
