Appraisal / Reappraisal
The County Appraiser is an appointed office with the responsibility of discovering, listing, appraising and maintaining the records and data relating to all taxable and exempt real and personal property within Miami County. The County Appraiser’s Office staff value all taxable property as of January 1st each year.
The property data and values produced by the Appraiser's Office are used in a variety of ways. The primary purpose of the County's appraised values and resulting assessed values is to be used as a basis to set the property tax mill levees of the various taxing entities in Miami County each year. Other users of Appraiser's Office data include, property owners, realtors, fee appraisers, insurance companies and banks.
Considering the COVID 19 virus the Miami County Administration building is closed to the public. The Appraiser’s Office will be available to the public by phone and email. The Appraiser’s Office will be conducting all Payment Under Protest Hearings and 2020 Informal Hearings over the phone. The County will contact property owners by phone to conduct hearings. We request that all evidence for your hearing be sent by email if possible to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please understand that the County will be handling a higher call volume than we typically would, so please be patient as staff do their best considering this unique situation. If you do not get a call from us at your scheduled hearing time it is possible that we don’t have your phone number. In that case please call the County for your hearing. If you have questions feel free to email or call us at 913-294-9311. This is a fluid situation so we appreciate your consideration and patience.
Be Informed: If you’re thinking about buying a property or making improvement to a property, such as remodeling or new construction, and would like an estimate of value, give the Appraiser’s office a call. We’re always available to help explain and/or estimate potential changes in value.
