How is my assessment determined?

Buyers and Sellers determine Market Value.  The estimated market value of your real property is based on an analysis of the market for the full year prior to the completion of the revaluation project.  Your real property’s assessment is based on its estimated fair market value at the time of revaluation (October 1, 2018).

The “Field Card” or “Assessor’s Card” contains a detailed list of the factors used for your property. All Madison field cards are available from the Assessor’s Office.  A summary of your field card can be found online at
