Wyoming Property Tax

Wyoming Property Tax is based on the assessed value of real property, which is done at local level, by county assessors. The Wyoming Department of Revenue has an Ad Valorem Tax Division to supervise the process of property assessment in all counties and also to provide training and guidance to local government agencies. Assessed value of a property means taxable value, which is the basic component for the computation of property taxes in Wyoming.

Wyoming Property Tax does not apply to the full market value of a property, but only a fraction of it is considered for the computation of real estate tax. This system is called fractional assessment. For most property in Wyoming , the fraction of the full market value considered for the property tax purpose is only 9.5 percent. This means that a home with a fair market value of $100,000 will be taxed $9,500 in assessed value. The effect of this is to exempt $90,500 of the property's value from taxation.
