Volume XXII, Issue I January 2013 The mission of the Ad Valorem Division of the Oklahoma Tax Commission is to promote an ad valorem property tax system which is fair and equitable to all taxpayers by implementing standard valuation methodology, tax law conformity, and assessment administration compliance. Oklahoma Ad Valorem F O R U M Continued on page 2... “IAAO Zangerle Award Winner: 1997 and 2010” Director’s Notes: Happy New Year 2013! Here it is the middle of January and we still haven’t had any hard core cold weather, but at least we had some rain last week. It will be less than four weeks by the time the legislative session starts up. That means it has already been two years since the inaugural ceremony for Oklahoma’s first female Governor. The Ad Valorem Division has posted its Business Personal Property Schedule for 2013, and it is finalized and ready for business. We have had great input from everyone involved in the process. We will be sending email notices as a reminder to look on the web. Public Service is preparing its renditions for mail-out by February 14, 2013. Mike Isbell and his staff are planning for the sixth Capitalization Rate Conference on March 28 and 29th. We hope to post the forms for Public Service on February 1. We have had much discussion on the two State Questions 758 and 766: the 3 percent cap and the exemption for intangible personal property. We’ve changed the forms for both local and centrally assessed property, and the Ad Valorem Division hopes to report to the county assessors and deputies at the February County Officers and Deputies Association (CODA) meeting in Norman. If your county is not attending that meeting, let us know. We will post on the web any material presented. Intangibles are an important issue, and it is critical that everyone keep in touch so the information provided to taxpayers is consistent from county to county. The Ad Valorem Division has sent out the letters of improvement and concern for 2013. If your county received one, please review it carefully. It is our hope that the letter will clarify areas of concern before those issues become compliance problems. So please look at these letters in the spirit in which they are offered: a way to address possible compliance issues early in the process. I was really pleased with several counties which have made some really good improvements. IAAO did a great article on the Oklahoma Chapter of IAAO in the latest issue of Fair and Equitable featuring Doug Warr, AAS of CLGT, for winning the George Keyes Award for outstanding service to the IAAO Chapter for 2012. Congratulations to Doug. We are getting ready for the CODA meeting next month. Hope to see everyone there. We will have an idea about some of the plans the Legislature has for the next session. The Ad Valorem Division has been talking with President Gail Hedgecoth who’s serving her second time as President of the County Assessors’ Association. She told me that a few things have changed in the ad valorem system since 1996.
