Statewide exams for assessor, deputy assessor in April

Statewide examinations for the positions of deputy assessor and assessor have been scheduled for April, according to Courtney M. Kay-Decker, director of the Iowa Department of Revenue.

The examination for deputy assessor will be Saturday, April 20, and the examination for assessor will be Saturday, April 27. Both exams will be conducted at 8:30 a.m. in the fourth floor conference room of the Hoover State Office Building in Des Moines.

Under Iowa law, a person wishing to become eligible for appointment as an assessor or as a deputy assessor must successfully complete an examination and be certified by the Director of the Department of Revenue. Local officials can appoint only those persons certified by the Director of Revenue.

Applications for the examination may be obtained from city and county assessors, county auditors, or from the Department of Revenue — Property Tax Division.

“Our Property Tax Division must receive applications at least three days before the examination,” Kay-Decker said. “I encourage interested persons to submit their applications as soon as possible.”

The examinations are given approximately every six months.
