Having served as a Chief Deputy Assessor in Douglas County, I am amazed when someone wants to have their valuation for tax purposes raised! But there are folks who plan to sell and believe that getting their assessment raised, will result in a higher selling price. Not necessarily true.
I will tell you to beware: IF YOU ARE DOING THIS IN EXPECTATIONS OF GETTING A HIGHER SELLING PRICE... YOU WILL RAISE THE PRO-RATED TAXES IN THE BUYER'S CLOSING COSTS AND BRING THEM HIGHER PROPERTY TAXES WHEN THEY MOVE INTO THE HOUSE. PLUS: Why would you want to raise the buyer's taxes prematurely? It may well mean the difference between them buying YOUR house or SOMEONE ELSE'S!!!
But if you're hell-bent on getting you valuation raised, call the County Assessor's Office ASAP. Final Values for 2010 must be into the state of Nebraska by March 17.

Give me a call if you need further clarification on the valuation process, or solid counsel on the comparative value of your property.
