Making assessment and sales data available on the Internet gives the public the greatest access possible to property and sales information as well as the assessments on every property in Milwaukee. In addition to being a convenience for taxpayers, computerizing assessment data saves tax dollars by reducing manpower costs for city employees.
All interested property owners are encouraged to compare the new assessments to recent similar sales in the area. The best evidence of market value is a recent sale of the property or the sales of comparable properties.
