July 1, 2021 is the beginning of the new assessment year. This assessment will make up the 2022 tax ticket.
Real estate – Real estate is valued by three methods; farmland, managed timberland and market value.
Farmland – Farmland value is based on the income it produces. In order to have your land valued as farm, you or someone else, must qualify it as a farm or part of a farm operation.
If claimed by someone else, you need to ensure that they have your property listed on their farm application. We must have a competed form signed and on file before we can qualify your real estate as a farm. This form must be completed on a yearly basis and is due no later than September 1, 2021. The State of West Virginia will not allow us to accept the form after this date. In an effort to expedite the return of the farm form, we will mail an advance copy to those who qualified last year. If you have any questions or need assistance, please call or stop by the office and someone will assist you. Failure to meet the September 1, 2021 deadline will cause your property to be valued at market value which is a drastic increase over farm value.
If you are a new applicant, please contact us prior to this date. If you purchased new land or rented new farm property, make sure it is added to your farm form. If you have been approved/qualified for the farm rate and plan to timber/log your property, please contact our office. Land that is timbered/logged and is part of a qualified farm, can result in your property being appraised at market value and increasing your taxes on the property. By contacting this office, we can provide information and other options that may save you money.
Managed Timberland – Managed timberland must be applied for by July 1 and you must submit a contract annually, to the Division of Forestry. Managed timberland applications are available through the State Tax Department, Division of Forestry or this office.
Market Value – Market Value of real estate is the value your property would expect to bring, if sold.
Homestead Exemption – If you were 65 years old before July 1, 2022 or permanently and totally disabled and have been a resident of West Virginia for two full calendar years, you can qualify for a $20,000 assessed value exemption on your real estate. This exemption will save you at least $135.00 or as much as $185.00 for those who live within corporations. In order to receive this exemption, you must complete the application not later than December 1, 2021. This exemption once approved, will remain in effect. To qualify for disability exemption, you must provide proof of disability in addition to completing the application. The application and assistance in completing them, is available at this office.
Personal Property – The assessment of personal property, will be the same as last year. Vehicles will be assessed at 60% of NADA loan value. The value is based on vehicle identification numbers. Big trucks with non-apportioned license are to be reported on your assessment form. Trucks with apportioned license plates will still be reported to the Public Service Commission. All other property will be assessed at 60% of market value.
We charge a $25.00 fee on all supplemental tax tickets. These supplemental tax tickets are changes made because of incorrect information or lack thereof. To avoid the additional charge, please help us make sure you are assessed correctly. This can be done by contacting our office if you have not already been contacted by the Assessor, or a Deputy Assessor.
Dogs – State law requires that a tax be collected on all dogs in the county, which are at least six months old on July 1, or within ten days of the dog becoming six months of age during the assessment year. The dog tax is $3.00 per dog for those who reside outside of corporations. If you reside within the corporations of Marlinton, Hillsboro or Durbin the dog tax is $6.00 per dog.
Sheep & Goats – There is also a $1.00 per head assessment on all sheep and goats of breeding age. This assessment is to be collected by the Assessor or deputies and submitted to the Department of Agriculture for the Coyote Control Program.
If you have any questions, need assistance, or just feel more comfortable in person, please call or stop by our office. We are here to assist you. We want your assessment to be as easy and as convenient as possible for you to complete. The assessor and/or the deputy assessors, will attempt to contact everyone at their residence, please understand that this is not always possible.
We appreciate your support and cooperation in ensuring we have a fair and accurate assessment of our county.
If you have any questions, or need assistance, please call or stop by our office.
