WSATA Handbook

One important project undertaken by the Committee is the review and update of the Appraisal Handbook: Unit Valuation of Centrally Assessed Properties. The Handbook was first published in 1989 as the Appraisal Handbook: Valuation of Utility and Railroad Property.The Handbook is one of the principal pieces of appraisal literature in the field of unitary valuation and has been frequently referred to as a source document in property tax litigation. The 2009 edition of the Handbook was approved by the WSATA Executive Committee and is available for purchase in CD format.



$45 for WSATA members 

$95 for non-members
