TOWN ASSESSOR & MARKET VALUATION FOR 2018
To maintain fair and equitable assessments and to come into compliance with Wisconsin State Statutes, the Town of Greenville has implemented a Full-Value Assessment process, meaning all assessments will be brought to market value each year. This ensures all property owners are paying their appropriate share of property taxes. The last time assessments were brought to market value was 2006 when the last full revaluation was completed. In that twelve-year time period between revaluations, the market value of residential property has increased greatly.
The assessment value is just one of many variables used to determine property tax rates. A change in your property’s assessed value does not necessarily indicate an increase or decrease in the amount of property taxes you will pay. However, it does reflect the most recent market value of your property and helps to ensure all property owners are paying their appropriate share of taxes to support local school, technical college, county and municipal government services in our community.

The Assessor’s office is responsible for the valuation, using the assessment process, of all real and personal property located within the Town of Greenville for property tax purposes. Accurate Appraisal, LLC of Menasha, WI (www.AccurateAssessor.com) is the Town’s Assessor. The assessment process consists of the three basic procedures of discovery, listing, and valuation. Often the assessment process is thought of only in terms of valuation, but an assessment cannot even begin until it is known that certain assessable property exists (discovery) and that property data is collected and recorded (listing). Therefore, discovery and listing forms the foundation upon which all assessed values must rest.
It is the Assessor’s responsibility to ensure fair and equitable assessments throughout the Town. However, the Assessor does not set the tax rate nor raise or collect taxes to cover municipal budgets.
