Field Property Review

Every Six Years

The Assessor's Office conducts an ongoing program of reviewing all property within the County every six years. This review includes checking the size, type, condition, and any other characteristic information of all improvements on the property. These field reviews are a requirement of Wyoming Statutes and Department of Revenue Rules and Regulations. This helps us ensure the information used in the valuation process is current and accurate.

A rotation system has been developed so that one sixth of the properties in Sublette County are checked each year. Field reviews are also made when a building permit has been issued by the County Planning and Zoning Office or one of the towns in Sublette County. Once a building permit has been issued, the property is checked every year until the project is 100% complete.

Field Listers

The Assessor's Office has a staff of field listers conducting these inspections. These employees have photo identification issued by the Assessor's Office. They operate a County vehicle with signage on the doors that identifies them as employees of the Sublette County Assessor's Office.

The first step in every property visit is for the field listers to go to the door, identify themselves, and explain the purpose of their visit. If no one is home, they leave a door hanger stating that they had been there and a request to complete an online questionnaire to make sure that our data is accurate. The field lister then takes pictures of the buildings, also called improvements, and makes note of any changes to the buildings such as:

  • Decking
  • Siding
  • Roofing
  • Additions
