This year, the Legislature passed LB512, which includes provisions for the reassessment of real property suffering significant damage as a result of natural disastrous event. The damage must exceed 20% of an improvement’s assessed value, 20% of land’s assessed value, or 20% of a parcel’s assessed value, if the property is located in an area the Governor has declared a disaster area and a housing inspector or health inspector has determined the property is uninhabitable or unlivable. Persons owning real property qualifying for reassessment must file a report, Department of Revenue Form 425, with the county assessor and county clerk on or before July 15 of the year in which the disaster occurs.
