The 2017 Preliminary Major Class Comparison Report (sec. 70.05 Assessment Compliance) is now available on the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR)
To receive a 2017 Preliminary Compliance calculation, a municipality needed to file these two reports by October 1, 2017:
- 2017 Statement of Assessment (SOA)
- Final 2017 Municipal Assessment Report (MAR)
SOA must be error free to use for compliance measurement
- If the municipality did not file its 2017 information by October 1, the 2017 compliance is not displayed in this report and the preliminary compliance status appears as non-compliant
- If the 2017 compliance is not included in the preliminary report, DOR will review the late filed MAR and/or SOA in January, and will include the compliance on the Final Major Class Comparison Report
- If the Final Major Class Comparison indicates a municipality is in compliance, DOR will rescind any notices issued due to incomplete information
Note: DOR will send the rescind notices when we post the Final 2017 Major Class Comparison Report in February 2018.
