The mission of the Assessor's Office is to discover, list, and value all taxable property within the City of Pewaukee. By providing accurate and uniform values, we ensure that the property tax burden is distributed in a fair and equitable manner.
To accomplish its mission, the Assessor's Office uses methods in accordance with the Wisconsin Property Assessment Manual, which is available on this page, Wisconsin State Statutes, and professionally accepted appraisal practices. Other information that is available for assessors to consider includes the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and standards from the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO).
Wisconsin State Statute 70.32 states, "Real Property shall be valued by the Assessor in the manner specified in the Wisconsin property assessment manual provided under Section 73.03(2a) from actual view or from the best information that the Assessor can practicably obtain, at the full value which could ordinarily be obtained therefore at private sale".
2019 Assessment Maintenance Year
The City of Pewaukee will only be performing assessment maintenance during the 2019 assessment year. Properties that have building activity during 2018 (new construction and remodeling), properties that have recently been purchased (recent sales activity) and properties that have requested to have their assessment reviewed will be the emphasis of this assessment year. Demolished properties, shifts in assessment classification, application of the current year’s agriculture use values, and review of exemptions will also be performed. Assessment maintenance inspections began in October, 2018 and will conclude with the Board of Review.
Please also note that the Assessor has certain statutory authority to enter land as described in state law (Section 943.13 and 943.15, Wis. Stats.). The ability to enter land is subject to several qualifications and limitations, as described within the foregoing statutes.
