Just a quick note to let you know we are finalizing an Assessing application update that includes the updated 2021 MS-1. You can review the update notes in the online documentation for more details but as far as the MS-1 is concerned here’s what you need to know:
- There is one new exemption category and a slight change to a previously existing exemption category to indicate whether it has been adopted in your municipality.
- There are a handful of changes to some approved utility company names.
- Speaking of utilities… your utility values need to be updated before submitting your MS-1. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, speak to your assessor.
- Whether or not you have either exemption type, you should wait to export and submit the MS-1 XML file to DRA until you have applied the update.
The update should be out in another few days. Keep your eyes open for the download email, and make sure to apply the update before you submit your MS-1.
Hope you are well. Let us know if you have any questions.
