Statement of Personal Property Form
Sec. 70.34, Wis.

Stats., includes all goods, wares, merchandise, chattels, and effects, of any nature or description, having any real or marketable value, and not included in the term “real property.”

Sec. 70.30, Wis. Stats., states that “Every assessor shall ascertain and set down in separate columns prepared for that purpose on the assessment roll and opposite to the names of all persons assessed for personal property the number and value of the... items of personal property assessed to such person, which shall constitute the assessed valuation of the several items of property therein described...” The items of personal property with which the assessor must be concerned are:

   • The number and value of steam and other vessels (boats and watercraft).

   • The value of machinery, tools, and patterns.

   • The value of furniture, fixtures, and equipment.

   • The value of all other personal property except such as is exempt from taxation.

This form is mailed to business owners, pre-filled, each year, but can also be found on the Department of Revenue's website at: https://www.revenue.wi.gov/forms/govtvc/PA-003f.pdf
Request For Property Review

Property owners who wish to have the Assessor's Office review their assessed value or property assessment records for a given year must contact the Assessor's Office by January 31 of the associated year to request such a review. This review could consist of an In-Office Review of the current property record listings, a review of other owner-submitted concerns and/or documents or an On-Site Inspection to verify property attributes as they existed as of January 1. An associated Request For Property Review form must be filled out and filed with the City Assessor's Office by January 31. (Requests for review received after this January 31 date will be considered for the subsequent year as the condition or attributes of a property as of January 1 are difficult to document or ascertain after this date.) Request For Property Review forms are available in the City Assessor's Office or can be downloaded below.
