Logan County Property Taxes set to fall by 8%

As of January the 1st, 2014, Logan County property owners will pay significantly less in yearly ad valorem taxes.

The property tax reduction takes hold as Logan County Assessor, Tisha Hampton, lowers the percent of the tax from 12% to 11%.  This represents an 8% reduction in the base property tax paid by Logan County residents.

As an example, a resident of the Guthrie school district who owns a home valued at $150,000, and who claims homestead exemption, will experience a decrease from $1,297 to $1,183.

At 11%, the reduction brings Logan County's real property assessment ratio in line with the neighboring counties of Oklahoma, Payne, Lincoln, Kingfisher and thirty-five other Oklahoma counties.

"It wasn't right for Logan County residents to endure higher taxes than their neighbors in surrounding counties," Hampton explained. "By lowering taxes, we do right for current residents and stop the policy of punishing those who choose to move to Logan County from neighboring counties."

In 1996, Oklahoma voters approved State Question 675.  This initiative put a cap of 13.5% and a floor of 11% on the taxable percentage of property.  This effectively froze Logan County's assessment at its then-current ratio of 12%.  Earlier this year, Hampton determined that subject to the guidelines of SQ 675, she had the authority to lower the rate to 11%.  Hampton becomes the first County Assessor in Oklahoma to lower an assessment ratio since the state question was approved in 1996.  Once lowered, the rate may only be increased through a vote of the people.

Taxpayers will notice the new lower rates on tax assessments to be issued later this spring.

Why Did Your Property Tax Go Up? - Read the blog post from Representative Jason Murphey.

 


 

Tisha Hampton

"As the newly elected Logan County Assessor, I am committed to establishing Fair and Equitable property values."

1890 - Congress passes the Organic Act. Oklahoma became a territory of the United States when Congress passed the Organic Act on May 2, 1890. Section six of the Organic Act states that all property must be taxed in proportion to its value, which is the meaning of ad valorem, a Latin phrase that means "according to value." Today taxable property is valued in proportion to its value, or as a percentage of its value, just as it was when Oklahoma was known as the Oklahoma Territory.

Over the past few months I have talked to hundreds of Logan County residents and have taken careful note of their concerns. I will keep these concerns in mind as I conduct the review process. I will maintain an open-door policy and I intend to release a periodic update with explanations as to what the law provides. I want to establish a website that will be helpful to the property owners. I will carefully review your file and ensure that your property is assessed in a fair manner.

Thank you for providing this opportunity to serve as your County Assessor. I am honored by your trust and anxious to get to work on your behalf.
