Oklahoma County Assessor's office to help tally Logan County wildfire damage

Appraisers from the Oklahoma County Assessor's office will be in Logan County on Thursday, helping appraisers from the Logan County Assessor's office tally wildfire damages.

It's possible that the damage could lower owners' property taxes, said Oklahoma County Assessor's spokesman Larry Stein.

"It could take them months with their regular staff to be able to catch up with all of the damage that's there," Stein said Wednesday.

He said the Oklahoma County Assessor's office hopes to help their counterparts in Logan County finish assessments as quickly as possible.

"Any of the damage that's associated with a wildfire or a natural disaster can be assessed, and then that reduction of value can be done on the property, which may impact their property tax bill from the treasurer's office this year," Stein said.
