Why does the City have to conduct a revaluation?
The City of Superior Assessor's Office revalues all property on a quasi-cyclical nature to keep pace with changes in the market, as dictated by Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 70. The City of Superior must maintain its assessed values within 10% of true full market value within a specified time period. During a revaluation year, all assessments are examined and adjustments are made where necessary to guarantee that all properties are assessed at market value. This is done to assure that taxes are distributed equitably and uniformly.
