Lincoln Institute Sessions at the 2023 IAAO Annual Conference
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 two sessions on current issues in property tax policy and administration:
Truth in Taxation – An Alternative to Assessment and Levy Caps
Tuesday, August 29, 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Utah adopted Truth in Taxation to avoid “silent” tax increases that occur when property values rise and tax rates remain constant. This session will highlight how Truth in Taxation provides a policy alternative to assessment and levy caps, which can undermine equity in property taxation.
Demonstration of the Lincoln Institute Vertical Equity App
Wednesday, August 30, 1:00–2:30 p.m.
This session will demonstrate a new app developed by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and the Center for Appraisal Research and Technology that calculates several measures of vertical equity for assessments and provides a narrative report to assist the user in their interpretation.
