2019 MAR Filing Available

April 30, 2019

To: General Assessors, Certified Assessors

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) posted the 2019 Municipal Assessment Report (MAR). These reports are now available to electronically file (e-file) through your MyDORGov account.

The MAR and TAR form has been combined and moved to a new filing system. Filing information is available at the following links:

A. General filing information

B. Failure to file or late-filed forms

If you do not file by June 10, the following may occur:

  • Municipality receives a reduced levy limit due to the lack of new construction information
  • If the municipality has TIF districts,  the prior year's non-manufacturing full value is certified for the current year, which may result in less tax increment dollars available to the municipality

    Note: If you file an Estimated MAR by June 10, 2019, and do not file a Final MAR or TAR by December 31, 2019, the Equalization Bureau will file a formal complaint against your certification with the Certification and Education group in the Office of Technology and Assessment Services. This could result in assessor misconduct under state law (sec. 946.12(1), Wis. Stats.).
