Volume XXI, Issue I January 2012 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 2012 Unlike last year, Oklahoma’s January has not been a real deep freeze, but there’s still time for hard core cold weather. It’s hard to believe that we’re ready for another legislative session and it’s been a year since the inaugural ceremony for Oklahoma’s first female Governor in 2011. This year in 2012 we have some other firsts. Although the Oklahoma Assessors Association celebrated the 100th anniversary of the appointment of the first county assessors, they didn’t actually take office until the first Monday in January 1912. So we have a second anniversary to celebrate either on January 1 (the actual first Monday) or on January 8, 1912 because apparently most County Commissions waited until then. (History is always a little more complicated than it seems.) The Ad Valorem Division has published its Business Personal Property Schedule for 2012, and it’s been posted out on the web. The 2012 Schedule is a good effort, and we are pleased with the input we received from all parties involved. We are sending email notices on new material to remind people to look out on the web. Public Service is preparing its renditions for mail out by February 14, 2012. Mike Isbell and his staff are making plans for the fifth Capitalization Rate Conference on March 29 and 30th. We hope to post the forms for Public Service on February 1. We are expecting a busy year. The Ad Valorem Division has sent out the letters of improvement and concern for 2012. 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. IAAO did a great article on the Oklahoma Chapter of IAAO in the latest issue of Fair and Equitable featuring Mike Morrison of Oklahoma County for winning the George Keyes Award for outstanding service to the IAAO Chapter for 2011. Congratulations to Mike. Wade Patterson, Garfield County Assessor, is chair of the IAAO Communications Committee. We are preparing for the CODA meeting next month. Hope to see everyone there. We’ll have some idea about some of the plans the Legislature has for the next session. The Ad Valorem Division has been talking with President Scott Kirby who’s been burning up the road since he first took office. He was at the Capitol for a meeting on January 12 and a Rules Hearing on January 18th. He’s doing a good job working with the Ad Valorem Division.
