Volume XXI, Issue IV April 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: April can be a pretty tough month in Oklahoma. We talked with County Assessor Mistie Dunn yesterday, and she has been getting an initiation as a new assessor dealing with some serious storm damage. I was impressed, as always, at how many of the county assessors had checked in with her and offered advice and assistance. In looking back to last year’s newsletter in April 2011, I noticed that Atoka County was dealing with the same situation. Fred Argo (who worked for us then, but now is a Pottawatomie Deputy) was reporting on some significant storm damage. As I said last year, I hope that the rest of spring will be “uneventful” as we get through the last of April and May weather. We have posted our draft of the Public Service Capitalization Rate Study for 2012 on the web site. This is our fifth, year and we’re 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 Public Service if you question 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 questions. We’re working hard on the “Test Audit”. We have met with several software vendors about the data we will need for the new audit. We’ll be working getting the last of that data in shape, so we can complete this effort for the State Board of Equalization. We’re preparing for our district meetings in May and expect to have some discussion on the valuation issues that have occurred over the last few weeks. As I’ve often said, I really enjoy seeing the amazing variety of different type “country.” The contrast between the Quartz Mountain area and the green country in LeFlore County is a great example. It has been something that I’ve always enjoyed in visiting different parts of the state. • May 4 ........ Delaware County • May 11....... Jackson County • May 18.......
