Definitions and explanations

The change of assessed value at the simplified assessment of real estate in 2021 is calculated on comparable units. The term “comparable unit” refers to assessed units which are essentially unchanged between the assessments. It is this population that is given here. 

The assessed value shall correspond to 75 percent of the market value two years before the latest tax assessment. Market value refers to the price the assessed unit could get at a sale on the open market. For the general property taxation for one- or two-dwelling building that was conducted in year 2021, this means that the taxation value should be 75 percent of the sales price for year 2019 for one- or two-dwelling buildings.

 Type codes that are included in the comparison of assessed values are type code “220 One- or two-dwelling building, developed”, “223 One- or two-dwelling building, with residential buildings and premises”, “225 One- or two-dwelling building, dwelling with leasehold” and “230 One- or two-dwelling building, group house area under Chapter 12. 3§ FTL”.
