The department has issued 6,763 notices for properties within the Borough. During preparation for the 2015 tax roll, the Assessment department, focused on residential land and building valuations for the northern portion of the Borough and the roadless areas in the north end.

Quoting a news release, the Borough Assessor’s Office continues to innovate and improve the methods it uses to value Ketchikan residential and commercial properties and the ways it communicates with taxpayers.

A thirty day review period is provided for property owners to discuss any concerns about the 2015 valuations with Assessment staff. If sufficient evidence is obtained by the department during the review period, the valuation may be modified by the department. Evidence may include such items as appraisals or listings of the property, sales of comparable properties, engineering reports, or inspections of the property by Assessment staff.

Property owners with questions or concerns about their new valuations may contact the Borough Assessor’s Office at 907-228-6640 or visit the Assessor’s Office at 1900 First Avenue, Suite 219 in the White Cliff Building.

The 2015 valuations are also searchable using the Borough’s “Real Property Search” application which can be found on the Borough website at
