2019 Assessment Notices

2019 assessment notices were mailed on Friday, April 19, 2019.

What Does Doomage Mean?

When you received your 2019 assessment notice, you may have “Doomage” listed as one of the reasons for change, and may be wondering what that means.  Properties are noted as doomage if there is no interior inspection after a request to view has been made by the Assessor’s Office.  The doomage can be from a few months ago to years ago.  A doomage is not removed until an interior inspection is completed.

Property Assessment and Revaluation

The City Assessor’s Office is responsible for estimating the market value of all locally assessable property in the City of Milwaukee and producing an annual assessment roll listing all taxable property as of January 1st of each year.

The assessment roll describes the property, states the assessed value as of January 1st and lists the owner’s name and address. Property tax statements are computed in December using values on the assessment roll.

Appeals and Objections

Assessments can be appealed during the period between the end of April when notices are mailed and the 3rd Monday in May.

An objection must be filed by requesting an objection form and returning the completed form to the Assessor's office by the deadline.

See the links below for more information on the appeals and objection process.
