The Wayland Board of Assessors has received Preliminary Certification of values for the Fiscal Year 2015 Assessments.
The Department of Revenue, Bureau of Local Assessment, completed its preliminary review of the Assessors revaluation program and the proposed assessments for all classes of property for fiscal year 2015. The Bureau's statistical analysis of arms-length residential sales indicated compliance with the Commissioner's standards for certification. In addition, the Bureau's review of a representative sample of parcels and of personal property accounts indicated a consistent application of the valuation methodologies employed for these classes of property throughout the community.
