177.00.01 Ark. Code R. § 006 - Amendment Rule 3.29 - Location Factors, Amendment Rule 4.19 - Uniform Notice of Real Estate Value Change


When using the cost manual, location factors shall be used to adjust costs to the proper level in each neighborhood. The overall location factor for a neighborhood shall be determined from analysis of individual sales using the basic formula: Location Factor = Improvement Value (Sale Price Less Lot Value) + RCNLD (Replacement Cost New Less Depreciation). Valid sales of properties from new to three years old should be used for the most accurate work. Sales should not have substantial improvements other than the house. Any item not being valued from the manual should be subtracted from the selling price. Accurate lot values are necessary. Statistical software can be utilized to provide additional analysis and accuracy. Comparative analysis can be used for neighborhoods where appropriate sales are insufficient

Effective 7/10/01


Whenever an audit, using the standards established elsewhere in these rules, performed by the ACD indicates that proper reappraisal procedures are not being followed, that finding will be reported by certified mail to the appraisal manager. The aforementioned letter will be copied to the county assessor, board of equalization, county judge, quorum court, and the appraisal company when applicable.

For each out of compliance category, the appraisal manager must bring reappraisal procedures into compliance within 30 calendar days of the date of the certified letter and notify the ACD, and must make necessary corrections of past reappraisal work within 90 calendar days or by July 1 of the valuation year, whichever comes first, or the reappraisal plan will be terminated immediately, and funding will be terminated.

Effective 4/27/01

Counties employing Section 1 of Amendment 79 shall not be required to list assessments in subsequent years on the form. Sending notices not conforming to the above shall constitute a violation of this rule, and when discovered, the responsible party will be required to send new notices, which comply with this rule, to affected property owners.
