Lancaster County recently released their new preliminary property values report, which will be the basis for property tax bills in 2020. Because of increasing home values, many residents of LD29 will see an increase in home valuation, and subsequent property tax bill. In order to see your new assessed value, you can visit the Lancaster County Assessor’s website at http://lancaster.ne.gov/assessor/2019Values.htm 

On March 25, the finalized valuation changes will be posted on the Lancaster County Assessor website. At this point, if you feel that your protest was not properly evaluated, there is a formal appeals process through the Nebraska Tax Equalization and Review Commission that is outlined in this document.

The timeline for the appeals process is listed here and the formal complaint must be filed by June 1. You can also contact the Tax Equalization and Review Commission directly at (402) 471-2842 if you have specific questions about this process. As always, you can contact my office at (402) 471-2734 for other questions.

One of my goals while in the legislature has been to shape our state’s tax discussion to include the effect that property taxes have on residential property taxpayers. As a member of the appropriations committee, I have supported increases in the Property Tax Cash Fund, a dedicated fund that directly reduces the property taxes you pay. Additionally, this year I’ve introduced legislation, LB420, to create a property tax “circuit breaker” which provides a tax credit in the event that property taxes increase significantly compared to a person’s income. The bill will have a hearing on Thursday, February 21 at 1:30 in the Revenue Committee.
