Assessed valuation

The value assigned to property by a municipality for the purpose of tax assessment. Such an assessed valuation is important to investors in municipal bonds that are backed by property taxes.

Assessed Valuation

The value of a property as determined by an appraisal conducted by a municipality. The assessed valuation usually occurs every year when a municipality asks for appraisal to determine the liability for property taxes. If a property owner wishes to dispute the value of an appraisal, he/she may request a reassessment. The assessed valuation may take into account the quality of the property, values of surrounding properties, and market conditions in the area.
