How often is my home reassessed?

The State of Iowa requires that all real property be reassessed every two years on the odd numbered year. At that time, studies of current market value, sales ratios and economic trends of the local market will  determine whether your assessment should change. If your property has  any other change it may be reassessed more often. For example, if you  build a new garage, it will be assessed for the following year whether it is an odd number year or not.
