As of January 1, 2023 the Village of Twin Lakes contracted with Associated Appraisal Consultants, Inc. for assessment services.
The Village of Twin Lakes last performed a market revaluation in 2021.
The state of Wisconsin is a Market Value state. This means property values are required to mirror the fair market value of comparable properties to ensure property owners are paying their fair share of taxes.
The fair market value of all property is calculated by reviewing arm’s length sales between a willing seller and a willing buyer on the open market. Assessors consider information from many sources to determine your assessment.
Assessors review market sales every January 1. Sales after the new year will not be used to determine value. The property tax bill you receive in December is based on the assessment value of your property as of the previous January 1.
Assessors don’t set tax rates. There are no additional taxes collected by the village during a revaluation. The revaluation does not change the amount of tax collected by the village, county, school district or technical college.
