Assessment Notices To Be Mailed Week of March 27th


The Webster County Assessor’s office plans to mail the 2023 property assessment notices to property owners around the week of March 27th.

The notices are intended to inform the property owners of the estimated market value of their property. The values should not be confused with taxable value or the tax bill.

If you disagree with your property’s assessment, start by asking yourself a couple of questions:

  1. What are similar properties selling for in your area?
  2. How does the value compare to similar properties in your area?
  3. What would you expect to list or sell your house for today?

Property owners are encouraged to do further research on their property’s market value by visiting and clicking on Property Search under Webster County, Iowa.  This website offers comparable sales search and sale price information.  You can also find sale lists on our county website at

If you still disagree with the assessments after considering the questions above, there are two options to appeal.  You can start with an informal review April 2nd thru April 25th by contacting our office or you may file a petition with the Board of Review April 2nd thru April 30th.

If you have further questions or wish to schedule an informal review, please call our office at 515-576-4721, on or after April 2nd.  Our office hours are 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday thru Friday.
