Volume XXII, Issue V May 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: The news from the massive May 20th Moore tornado is just starting to come in, and I’m sure we’ll hear a lot more as the days and weeks go by. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was impacted by this example of nature’s power and unpredictability. As I was putting this newsletter together, we pulled a copy of the old May 1999 Ad Valorem Forum from our files. Two things struck me about that newsletter now fourteen years ago. First, things that you worry that might happen often don’t. One of the articles was about the County Assessors Association, the State Auditor and Inspector, and the Ad Valorem Division working feverishly on the big Y2 problem coming at the end of the year. (We shouldn’t have lost any sleep worrying about that one, should we?) Second, I was struck that the May 3, 1999 tornado was only a few years after the Oklahoma City Bombing and many times when the tornado was mentioned, so was the bombing. One of the quotes in the May 1999 newsletter was “Just as Oklahoma pulled together during the bombing, we’ll do the same in the wake of this tragedy.” I think that’s still true today; Oklahoma will pull together and come back stronger. We’ve had three good district meetings so far. Our first two sessions were the Northwest meeting hosted by Roger Mills County and Southwest hosted by Kiowa County. Teresa, Buddy and their staffs did a lot of work and pulled off two great sessions. Last Friday, Kim Cane hosted the Southeast District in Carter County at the Dornick Country Club in Ardmore, which was designed by a famous Oklahoman, Perry Maxwell, in 1914. It was one of the first facilities of its type in the state. I learned that Maxwell is known worldwide for golf courses such as Augusta, Southern Hills in Tulsa, and Twin Hills. We had a really good meeting. We’ve sent out a bulletin reminder on the abstract submission dates. Abstracts are due by statute on June 15. The State Board of Equalization has scheduled its regular meeting for June 13 which makes it early this year. We need to have abstracts in by June 12, so we can review for the June 13th meeting. Don’t let the submission date slide by. Five-year exemption checks and EFT were sent out earlier this month. This is the second year in a row that we’ve sent out payments in May instead of June. Doug Brydon has more in this newsletter. We met last week with the County Assessors Association President, Gayle Hedgcoth and the officers after the Carter County meeting for a planning session for the Annual Conference with CLGT and CCAP. If you have any thoughts about the Annual Conference, please let us know. We need input from everyone involved in making the annual conference a good event.
