Frequency of Valuation
State law requires that the Assessor maintain a systematic revaluation program. All property in Johnson County is reviewed at least once every 4 years. If property characteristics change because of new construction, remodeling, additions, subdivisions, etc., a new valuation is determined. All property is re-valued annually based on available information and current cost tables. If you as a land owner made an improvement you are responsible by statute to contact our office for a new valuation.
Methods of Valuation
The laws governing the tax appraisal processes of Wyoming are based upon the same principles and procedures that are used throughout the appraisal profession. There are three basic approaches to the valuation of real property:
- The MARKET APPROACH involves comparison of a property with the characteristics of similar properties that have recently been sold.
- The COST APPROACH involves estimating the replacement cost of a structure, and adjusting that estimate to account for depreciation.
- The INCOME APPROACH is an analysis of a property’s value based on its capacity to generate revenue for the owner.
The appraiser may use all approaches that apply to a particular property.
The mission of the Johnson County Assessor’s office is to provide the citizen’s of Johnson County with fair and accurate property assessments while ensuring that service to the public is efficient, courteous and knowledgeable. Our office will at all times comply with the statutory requirements rules and regulations established by the State of Wyoming.

As your County Assessor, my staff and I are responsible for discovering, listing and determining the fair market value of approximately 12,000 parcels located in Johnson County. To accomplish this, industry-accepted mass appraisal procedures and methodologies are used. Items such as location, property characteristics, sales information, etc., are analyzed each year to determine the estimated fair market value. The cooperation and involvement of property owners contributes to more accurate values. Taxation is a complex and unpopular subject. Understanding the statutory requirements of this office and your rights as a property owner may help in relieving concerns.
I believe in your right to be an informed citizen. Providing you with information regarding all aspects of the assessment process is priority. My staff and I are here to serve. We are committed to providing fair treatment to all, starting with the manner in which you are greeted when you contact the office to ensuring the best available information is being used when determining the value of property. I look forward to any comments or suggestions that will allow us to continue to improve customer service and responsiveness.
