tax value

What is the best way to determine tax value? Have a 2001 Wildwood 32 ft BH travel trailer. Our county tax office is trying to value it at $21,000. Is NADA good pricing option? I know a dealer would list it higher if selling, but they won't give you anything much on trade-in. Thanks for any help!

Nada is the way my tax office does it.

I went to NADA and threw in a few random options, obviously not knowing what you have. The NEW list came out to a little over $18K, and the low and high current retail were about $5K and $6K. I'd go to NADA, run the information on the options that you have, and take it to the assessor.

I'm not claiming that the values are or are not close to what you might actually get for the trailer, but NADA is a recognized and independent source.

I always check with ins co. They will give a replacement value. Its not even close to Any tax agency. You can also try trade in value which is always low. They might give written est.

That is way to high for a 22 year old Wildwood. The $5,000 or $6,000 seems more in line with reality.

You might get on, punch in your trailer and see what comes up. Take about 30% off the selling price to get a trade in value. Between that and NADA, you can come up with a decent idea.
