The City of Franklin has contracted with Tyler Technologies to serve as the City Assessor. Tyler is the nation’s oldest and largest mass appraisal firm and has worked for the City of Franklin since the early 1990’s. 

The Assessor’s Office is responsible for providing fair and equitable assessments based on what is taking place in the local real estate market. The Assessor is also responsible for assessing personal property for businesses (business equipment) and follows procedures as outlined in the Wisconsin Property Assessment Manual and Wisconsin Statutes.

On occasion, property owners may receive a letter and/or visit from the Assessor’s Office to inspect a property. 

The typical reasons the assessor would request an interior inspection of a property include:

  • A property owner applies for and is approved for a building permit for items such as remodeling, an addition, basement finish, or new construction.

  • A property owner requests a review of their assessment.

  • Verification of the accuracy of current assessment records.

The typical reasons the assessor would inspect the exterior of a property include:

  • A property owner applies for and is approved for a building permit for items such as a detached garage or shed, central air conditioning, exterior remodeling, decks, pools, and/or other similar exterior type items.

  • A property owner requests a review of their assessment.

  • Verification of the accuracy of current assessment records. 

All Tyler staff carry an official City of Franklin photo ID and their vehicle information is on file in the Assessor’s Office and the Police Department.  Should you have any questions on the identification of a member of Tyler staff, or on the assessment process, please contact the Assessor’s Office at 414-425-1416.
