The County Assessor is responsible for discovering, listing, classifying and valuing all property in the county in accordance with state laws. The Assessor’s goal is to establish accurate values of all property located within the county, which in turn ensures that the tax burden is distributed fairly and equitably among all property owners. The Assessor collects data on all property, including exempt property. This data includes a description of the improvements, land size, legal description, ownership, property address and owner address. The Assessor maps provide a general description of the site shape and size.
The Assessor can not and does not levy taxes. The levying of taxes is done by a constituted taxing authority within each taxing district. Courteous answers and helpful assistance will always be provided by the Assessor and her staff.
Property tax revenue supports public schools, county governments, special districts, municipal governments, and junior colleges. All of the revenue generated by property taxes stays within our county. Property taxes do not fund any state services.
