Listing of propertySubdivisions and segregation of interests.

(1) Introduction. This rule explains when the assessor must begin the listing and valuation of property in the county. It also provides information relating to the listing and valuation of subdivisions of real property. Finally, this rule explains when a person will be allowed to pay property taxes on their partial interest in a parcel of real property.
(2) Listing of property. The assessor must begin the listing and valuation of all property in the county, except new construction and mobile homes not previously assessed in this state, not later than December 1st of each year, and complete the listing and valuation not later than May 31st of the succeeding year. The listing and valuation of new construction and mobile homes not previously assessed in this state must be completed by August 31st of each year.
(3) Valuation of subdivisions. For purposes of this subsection, "subdivision" means a division of land into two or more lots. The assessor must list and value all subdivisions of real property at one hundred percent of true and fair value as follows: Each lot of a subdivision must be valued by October 30th of the year following the recording of the plat, replat, or altered plat. The value established will be the value of the lot as of January 1st of the year the original parcel was last revalued. Each lot of a subdivision that is valued on or before May 31st, or the closing of the assessment roll, whichever is later, must be placed on the roll for that assessment year. Each lot of a subdivision that is valued after May 31st, or the closing of the assessment roll, whichever is later, must be placed on the roll for the succeeding assessment year.
(4) Petition for payment of taxes on partial interest. Any person desiring to pay taxes on only their interest in a parcel of real property, whether their interest is a divided interest or an undivided interest, may do so by applying to the assessor of the county where the property is located. The assessor must determine the value of the applicant's interest and certify that value to the county treasurer who will accept payment of taxes for the applicant's interest in the property. No segregation of the property can be made unless all current year and delinquent taxes and assessments on the entire parcel have been paid in full, except for the following situations, in which all current year and delinquent taxes and assessments on the entire parcel need not first be paid in full:
(a) When property is being acquired for public use; and
(b) When a person or financial institution desires to pay the taxes and any penalties and interest on a mobile home upon which they have a lien by mortgage or otherwise.
