Iowa Commercial Property Owners Will See Significant Increases in the 2023 Revaluation

For the first time since the pandemic, Iowa will be conducting its biennial reassessment across the state. The experts at Ryan are anticipating a 20% statewide multifamily increase, with the most significant increase in Polk County. Des Moines could see an average of a 23% increase, with the largest impact on residential, multifamily, and industrial property owners:  

  • 18% overall commercial real estate
  • 20% industrial
  • 23% multifamily/residential
  • hotels to return to around 90% of 2019 values

Notices of value will be released April 1, with an appeal deadline of April 30. Property owners who disagree with their property assessments may file a protest with the Board of Review on or after April 2, up to and including April 30, of the year of the assessment. Hearings will be held through early June.

The 2023 valuations will increase for many property owners. To minimize your property tax exposure, it is critical that all assessments are reviewed. The local Iowa experts at Ryan have a proven history in assisting clients with tax savings. Contact us today.
