Supreme Court Accepts 7 New Cases
The Wisconsin Supreme Court has voted to accept 7 new cases.
One of those cases is B. Spiegelberg v. State of Wisconsin, et al, a case involving 150 acres of farmland divided into five tax parcels. When the state Department of Transportation took 11 acres for road building, a dispute over how to value the property sparked this court case.
The question before the Supreme Court is whether, in situations involving multiple contiguous parcels of land, the property should be valued at (1) fair market value of the property as a whole, or (2) the sum of the fair market value of each individual tax parcel. From Winnebago County.
