Annual Assessment Report (AAR) Filing Questions

  1. Do I need to list employees in the report?

  2. What should I include in the scope of work?

  3. What documents should I include as attachments?

  1. Do I need to list employees in the report?

    Yes. You must include the name of anyone who helped complete the assessment. The municipality's statutory assessor is the same person who signs the roll.
    If you hire an outside contractor for a revaluation, the assessor must sign the roll and the AAR. You must identify the names of those providing the help (outside contractor and staff) in the AAR.

  2. What should I include in the scope of work?

    Include a description of how you assessed all properties regardless of their specific use. That is, you should describe your process for assessing residential, agricultural, and commercial properties.
