Assessment Roll and Assessor’s Report Filing Guidelines

File names and accompanying documents: (Please be sure to sign Assessor's Report (AR))

Tentative Roll [1] Final Roll [2]
RPSv4: RPS.db & RPS.log RPS.db & RPS.log; Print Final Assessor's Report
Required Report Selections*:
Muni Part1; Muni Change in Level; Address Info;
Muni Part1 Totals by Property Class & Roll Section;
Muni Part1 Totals by School District
*For RPSv4 users, we have removed the requirement for the 'Part2 Detail Changes' report to save local printing and mailing costs. This data is accessed by ORPTS from the V4 database submitted.

Non-RPS: File names should identify municipality, roll year and content. The AR "Summary of Total Assessed Value" (Part 1) should be printed and signed. If an AR "Detailed List of Changes" (Part 2) file is not included with the roll file provided, a printed version of this report must accompany your "Summary of Total AV" (Part 1) report. A file layout of the assessment roll file and assessor's report file (if applicable) must accompany your submission.

Also, when appropriate, include Assessor's Report Part 6 for Court Ordered Changes and Part 7 for Small Claims Adjustments or Correction of Errors.
