OMAHA, Neb. — The new property tax valuation notices sent to about 100,000 Douglas County homeowners reflect the increases and reductions ordered by the state.

The Nebraska Tax Equalization and Review Commission had said valuations were too low for more than 75,000 homes in central and west Omaha. The commission ordered Douglas County assessor/register of deeds Diane Battiato to raise the valuations by 7 percent. The commission also said valuations were too high on about 25,000 properties in northeast Omaha and ordered Battiato to lower them by 8 percent.

The county plans to appeal the commission’s order to the Nebraska Supreme Court.

Battiato told the Omaha World-Herald (http://bit.ly/1Uxi2Fo ) that her office mailed the valuations out Tuesday to meet the June 1 deadline.
