Register for Legal Seminar

Registration is now open for the IAAO 39th Annual Legal Seminar. The seminar will be held in Chicago, Illinois, at the Intercontinental Chicago Magnificent Mile on December 13–14, 2018 and will cover legal topics of interest to members of the assessment and property tax industry. Topics for the two-day seminar include recent developments in real property taxation, litigation strategies for big box properties, and ethics for attorneys.

October Webinar

The October 17th IAAO webinar will be on Developing Effective Age Models. Depreciation models are a function of age that reflects the condition of a property and highlights the decline in asset over time. Whenever properties are remodeled, the change in condition dictates recapturing the appreciation in the asset. The October 17th webinar at Noon Central will introduce a new theory on effective age and outlines a clear procedure that captures asset appreciation. Using residential sales data in Harris County, Texas, effective age models are developed for different levels of remodeled residential properties. The results of the models are tested against sales and the appraised values of unsold remodeled residential properties, and yield all acceptable levels of estimates as outlined by IAAO.
