Annual Assessment Report (AAR) Requirements

  1. Where should I submit the AAR?

  2. How does DOR determine compliance while reviewing the AAR?

  3. What happens if I don't file an AAR?

  4. Do I have to submit a new AAR every year?

  1. Where should I submit the AAR?

    You must submit the AAR to two different entities:

    1. Municipality - deliver the original signed AAR to the municipality before the Board of Review (BOR) begins
    2. DOR - submit your report to DOR within 30 days after the final adjournment of the BOR

  2. How will DOR determine compliance while reviewing the AAR?

    DOR will verify the report:

    1. Follows the prescribed components
    2. Is compliant to statutes, case law and the WPAM
    3. Adheres to statistical measures of performance (You must calculate these measures of performance when adequate data is available and explain their meaning.)

  3. What happens if I don't file an AAR?

    If you do not file an AAR, you will first receive a warning from DOR, with further violations resulting in a review of your assessor certification for possible suspension or revocation.

  4. Do I have to submit a new AAR every year?

    Yes. As each assessment year stands on its own, you must complete an AAR annually. In each case, the narrative should describe the processes you used for the current year. However, it may be appropriate to discuss the base-year (revaluation) methods as the source for the current figures.
