    Successfully Prepare, Defend and Manage Large Appeals 03/20/2019 IAAO Webinar Series - While many assessors will routinely defend municipal assessments through an administrative appeal process or in court, there are certain properties that are, quite simply, different. At one point in her or his career, an assessor will be forced to mount a defense of such a massive assessment, coordinating with a team of municipal officials, legal counsel, and third-party experts.

    Through detailed discussion of real-life case studies, the presentation seeks to empower assessors to more fully understand the unique challenges involved in the "once in a career" abatement litigation. The goal of "preparing the mega case" is to help ensure that municipal assessors will be prepared to tackle those challenges head on and manage a team of professionals to ensure a successful defense.

    Measuring Marijuana: Auditing Medical Marijuana Facilities 04/17/2019 IAAO Webinar Series - Rapid medical marijuana industry growth is anticipated through the year 2025. This growth of the industry stems from rising awareness regarding marijuana’s various medical applications. The introduction of a new industry to the market place has created confusion about taxability and appraisal methodology for Assessors, while taxpayers have been left to feel uncertain about what to file and report for their businesses. This presentation details the legalization, investigation, and public education that occurred in Maricopa County, Arizona and will cover the best practices of an audit process to establish that all medical marijuana facilities are filing and reporting correctly. It will also highlight unique issues specifically related to medical marijuana that are not common to other industries.
