Lincoln Institute Sessions at the 2020 IAAO Annual Conference

August 30, 2020 - September 1, 2020

Offered in English

The annual conference of the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) offers state and local assessing officials the opportunity to hear varied perspectives on property tax issues from practitioners and valuation experts. This year, the Lincoln Institute will present three seminars for conference participants on current issues in valuation and property tax policy:

Property Tax Policy Research Tools, Methods and Resources
Assessing officers and their associations should act as an information resource to enable legislators and other policy makers to better understand the effects of proposed policy changes. This session will highlight how to find property tax policy information and provide examples of key system features in the U.S. and Canada.

Solutions for Estimating the Value of Land in a Large Urban Jurisdiction
Accurate measurement of land value is an important component of a sound assessment system, yet allocating the land portion of total property value is challenging in areas with few vacant land sales. This session will present new methods for estimating land values in a large urban jurisdiction.

The Use and Benefits of Automated Valuation Models: Results and Insights from the 2019 AVM Survey
In 2019, the IAAO in partnership with the Lincoln Institute, surveyed the IAAO membership on the use of Automated Valuation Models (AVMs) for the assessment of property. This presentation will reveal the results of the survey and provide insight into accuracy and efficiency of these valuation tools.
