AN ACT relative to appraisals of property with off-site views.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

1 Department of Revenue Administration; Appraisals of Property Tax for Tax Purposes; Duty Added. Amend RSA 21-J:11, II to read as follows:

II. The commissioner, at no expense to the municipality, shall monitor appraisals of property and supervise appraisers as follows:

(a) Assure that appraisals comply with all applicable statutes and rules;

(b) Assure that appraisers are complying with the terms of the appraisal contract or agreement;

(c) Assure that no appraisal of a property’s off-site view feature may be created or maintained by a Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal System, or CAMA. All appraisals of a property’s off-site view feature shall be made by an on-site visit to the property being assessed by an appraiser certified under RSA 21-J:14-f. Legitimate arm’s length sales of properties that share the same off-site view feature shall also be used to assess such properties;

(d) Review the accuracy of appraisals by inspection, evaluation, and testing, in whole or in part, of data collected by the appraisers; and

[(d)] (e) Report to the governing body on the progress and quality of the municipality’s appraisal process.

2 Effective Date. This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
