Volume XXII, Issue VII July 2013 The mission of the Ad Valorem Division of the Oklahoma Tax Commission is to promote an ad valorem property tax system which is fair and equitable to all taxpayers by implementing standard valuation methodology, tax law conformity, and assessment administration compliance. Oklahoma Ad Valorem F O R U M Continued on page 2... “IAAO Zangerle Award Winner: 1997 and 2010” Director’s Notes: The Annual Conference hasn’t reached its 70th birthday yet, but it’s getting close. We’ll be conducting the Sixty-ninth Annual Conference in Tulsa within the next few weeks--our eighteenth year in Tulsa, and seventeenth at the current location. It’s a good fit for the County Assessors’ Association. We’ll have no major changes in our format this year. The conference will be held entirely in the hotel without using the OSU-Tulsa campus for our computer sessions. This will be the third year in a row and this arrangement has worked well. As always, we have invited State Board of Equalization members to address the group on our Tuesday session. So far, State Auditor Jones and Treasurer Miller are scheduled to attend. We have appreciated the work of the County Assessors Officers at the planning session. President Gail Hedgcoth, David Tinsley, Mandy Snyder, and Cathy Haynes have been great to work with as well as the help from Gary Snyder, RES, Doug Warr, AAS, and Scott Warren in making the final arrangements. Conference registration is proceeding fairly well with 44 counties registered so far with about 210 assessors and deputies registered. We often have a last minute “bank run” on registrations in the last two weeks. We should be close to the same turn-out as last year in the neighborhood of 480 attendees or more. There are 38 different classes, so we will end up with classroom/hours close to last year’s record of 5,544 student hours. The conference will again recognize those County Assessors and Deputies who’ve completed their initial and advanced accreditation programs. To recognize that achievement, the Center for Local Government Technology and the Ad Valorem Division will present accreditation certificates at the opening session. Conference Highlights: • Our opening session will have a little more activity. Jewette Farley, CAE will present a keynote speech on ad valorem entitled “Never Ask the Barber if You Need a Haircut.” He will teach a session later in the week on Quality Control entitled “Perfect is Not Good Enough.” Jewette is always a popular speaker at our conferences. • Ann Embree with OSU Agricultural County Extension will be back after a couple of years’ absence discussing Tax Roll Corrections. There will be a session on the aftermath of SB 954, and a presentation on Taxpayer “Due Process” with Kenny Chuculate, Wade Patterson, and Gary Snyder, RES. • The Mapping Track, which is moderated by Troy Frazier, CMS, will have discussions on the GIS Council and its data warehouse, an update by USGS, a basic mapping class, and specific software training on MIMS with Dr. Paul Bendt and Kyla Bendt, and ArcGIS with Troy Frazier.
