Commercial property assessment, both real and personal, is performed by the local county assessor’s office. The Property Tax Division of The Wyoming Department of Revenue directs this process through assisting, monitoring and training. The Department of Revenue also implements and maintains a uniform CAMA (Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal) system in all 23 counties.
The Property Tax Division annually publishes the Wyoming Personal Property Manual, which provides guidance to county assessors and other interested parties regarding the discovery, listing, classification, and valuation of commercial personal property for ad valorem tax purposes.
By March 1st of every year all agricultural, business, and industrial personal property shall be reported to the county assessor in which the property is located. See Forms for the reporting of personal property.
Wyoming State Statute requires that the county assessors annually update property values. Assessors are also required to complete a detailed review of real property characteristics for each property at least once every six years. The State Board of Equalization may take corrective action if county assessments do not meet established standards. Visit the Wyoming State Board of Equalization website for further guidance.
