"At the direction of the Legislature, the West Virginia State Tax Department, over a three-year period, through independent contractors, is to evaluate the quality of the property assessments of residential and commercial real property valued by the local county assessors in all 55 counties, as well as industrial real property valued by the State Tax Department.
In order to complete this study, counties containing approximately one third of the State's real property parcels will be subject to review each year during the three year study.
Funding for the Statewide Property Tax Equalization Study began in Fiscal Year 2008."
