How do we value your structure?
Values are based on Replacement Cost New Less Depreciation (RCNLD). A price per square foot is determined by cost manuals (Wyoming uses Marshall & Swift), measurements are taken, calculated and then depreciated to get an Improvement Value.

How do we follow up?
The Assessor's Office uses multiple tools to follow up on properties.
- Building Permits
- Sales information on the internet
- Eagleview - online mapping tool with oblique imagery
- Geographic Information Systems (GIS) - internal mapping software
The Assessor's Office Employees take courses to achieve Property Tax Appraiser Certification by the Wyoming Department of Revenue. The Appraisers must have a temporary certification to set values.
Permanent certification is achieved by taking International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) Course 101, Uniform Standards & Ethics (USPAP) and 90 hours of core classes.
