Assessment Process


Fair & Accurate

The Assessor's Department follows a clearly defined process to complete its duties.

Assessors estimate property market values, classify properties according to their use, and review valuations on a regular basis to determine if estimated market value adjustments are needed.

Each spring, property valuation notices are mailed to property owners. These annual notices allow owners to review the estimated market value of their property and appeal if they choose.

After appeals are completed, the Assessor totals the estimated market value of all properties and shares those values with the taxing jurisdictions that set tax levies.

The Assessor's responsibility in the process is with market value and classification, not taxes.

The Assessor's Department does not:

  • Collect taxes,
  • Calculate taxes,
  • Determine tax rates, or
  • Establish property tax laws.

Questions about property tax payments should be directed to the Auditor's Department.
