What if I refuse to allow the assessor into my home?
The Wisconsin Legislature recognizes the conflict between the right of privacy and the need for accurate information when establishing assessments. If an owner refuses entry into the property, the assessor sends a certified letter requesting a reasonable time for viewing the home. If no response is received, or entry is refused, the assessor is required by law to estimate the value of the home based on the best available information. The property owner maintains his right of privacy.
