Volume XXII, Issue IV April 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: April can be a pretty tough month in Oklahoma, but this year it’s basically unpredictable with radical temperature changes. Woodward County so far hasn’t had a repeat of last year’s April 15 tornado. County Assessor Mistie Dunn survived that tornado and her office made it through the year anniversary of that tornado. Just for the record, April 2011, Atoka County was dealing with the same situation. Let’s hope that the weather will be “uneventful” until we get through the last spring months of April and May. We have posted our Public Service draft Capitalization Rate Study for 2013 on the web site. This is our sixth year and we are pleased with the participation and interest we’ve had in the process. We had a well- attended Capitalization Rate Conference with several companies as well as county assessors in attendance. Public Service Section has appreciated the assistance from counties on checking properties which should be filed centrally. It is always a good idea to check with the Public Service Section if you have some question as to whether a property should be filed locally or centrally. It’s certainly easier to get the filing correct the first time rather than create potential problems for counties and schools if the filing is at the wrong level. Please check with Mike Isbell or the public service staff if you have any questions. Thanks to the County Assessors’ offices that have kept the Ad Valorem Division up-to-date on intangible filings. It is a fast changing situation, and we appreciate your help in keeping local and central coordinated. We’re working hard on the 2013 Audit. This audit will be a significant effort on the part of the Ad Valorem Division and County Assessors. Our staff was in last week and they’re really busy with the audit and requests from counties which have been making an effort to implement CAMA in their counties. I always enjoy the district meetings in May, and this year we’ll put quite a few miles of travel under our belts. This year will be no exception to the variety of different types of “Oklahoma” that we’ll see. Roger Mills is a lot different than Washington County and the same can be said for Carter County and Kiowa County. It’s always interesting. May 3............... Roger Mills County May 7...............OATR May 10............. Kiowa County May 17.............Carter County May 24.............Washington County Remember this is a required meeting under 19 O.S. Section 166. An absence without an excuse is subject to forfeiture of travel allowance for that month. If you cannot attend your district meeting, please make arrangements to attend a district meeting on another date.
