LEWIS COUNTY SALES DATA
The following page(s) list sales in Lewis County for the calendar year of 2014 and 2015. Sales from 2014 and 2015 were the primary market data used in setting values for Assessment Year 2016 for Taxes payable in 2017. The assessment/lien date for Assessment Year 2016 is 1/1/2016. This means your assessed value for assessment year 2016 should reflect 100% of the market value of your property as of 1/1/2016.
Citizens using this information should perform their own research to verify that each transaction is “arm’s length.” An arm’s length transaction is defined as “A transaction between unrelated parties under no duress.” (Appraisal Institute, The Dictionary of Real Estate Appraisal) Determining if a transaction is arm’s length is one step in ascertaining whether the sale and the purchase price may reflect market.
A key to general market areas and links to pages with countywide sales and sales broken out by general market areas are listed below.
