Real Property Assessment Notices
Date: February 7, 2018
Contact: Jeff Hurt, Borough Assessor, 907-228-6652
For Immediate Release
The Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assessment Department will be mailing real property assessment notices on February 9, 2018. The notices list the assessed value of each taxable property. Alaska Statutes and Ketchikan Gateway Borough Code of Ordinances require that properties be assessed at full and true value.
The Assessment Department has followed the local real estate market closely in order to determine local value levels. State and Borough regulations require that errors and omissions be reported to the Assessment Department's attention during a thirty day review period which begins from the date assessment notices are mailed. Within that time period property owners are encouraged to contact the Assessment Department if they have any questions or concerns about their assessment. The last day to appeal real property assessments is March 12, 2018.
Senior Citizen/Disabled Veteran property tax exemption applicants must return their 2018 application before March 31st, 2018 in order to be considered for qualification. If a senior citizen or disabled veteran has not received a 2018 application, contact the Borough Assessment Department so one can be provided. It is the responsibility of the applicant to file application timely.
