AkGlobe News/10284405

~ Juneau, Alaska - The City and Borough of Juneau Assessor's Office has begun its annual inspection of taxable properties within the borough. This process, which takes place between April and October every year, aims to ensure that all properties are accurately assessed for tax purposes.

With approximately 12,000 taxable parcels throughout Juneau, the Assessor's Office has divided the borough into neighborhoods and conducts inspections on a five-year cycle. This year, the neighborhoods being inspected include Auke Bay, Auke Mountain, Back Loop-South, Point Louisa, as well as Channel View, Waterside, and Glacier View mobile home parks.

During the canvass process, trained staff from the Assessor's Office will conduct exterior inspections of properties. This includes taking photos from various angles, verifying measurements, and assessing the condition of the property. These steps are necessary in order to provide an accurate value for tax purposes.

To ensure transparency and safety for residents, the Assessor's Office advises that anyone with questions about the identity of staff members should request to see their official identification.

According to state law (AS 29.45.150), all taxable properties within a municipality must be systematically reviewed and updated by the assessor. In 1993, the Juneau Assembly passed a resolution establishing a five-year cycle for reevaluation.

For more information about this process or to address any concerns regarding property assessments, residents can contact the Assessor's Office at (907) 586-5215 ext. 4906.
