****PUBLIC NOTICE****

Due to a Federal Declaration as a Disaster County, the 2019 protest of assessment period has been extended to April 2-June 5.

Valuation notices were mailed on March 22nd. With the recent/current flooding issues in Pottawattamie County, we realize this is a devastating time for some. We apologize for the timing of these notices to those affected and understand that it may appear to be insensitive. That is not our intention. By law, the Assessor's Office is required to notify all properties with a valuation change by April 1st.

Assessments are effective as of January 1st of each year. The current notices being sent out are for 1-1-2019. Property owners or property taxpayers impacted by the floods are advised to notify our office by emailing specifics to assessor@pottco.org. Due to the statutory effective date of our valuations (January 1st), any information received through assessor@pottco.org regarding flood damage will be reviewed for the January 1, 2020 assessment year.

If you have questions or concerns about your 1-1-2019 assessment, please review the Protesting Value tab on the left for additional information.

In addition to reporting issues to our office, damages should be reported to Emergency Management Services and the State of Iowa through the link below:
