Our commitment to the taxpayer:
We appreciate the opportunity to visit with you about any questions or concerns you have on your property, and how we have to complete our work. Please give us a call. Click here for Frequently asked Questions:
The Assessor's office primary responsibility is to determine "fair market value". We do not create value. Buyers and sellers create value by their transactions in the market place.
The Assessor is required to value each parcel of real property in the County by annually updating values based on current market data (sales comparables), and physically inspecting each property at least once every five years. Adjustments are made, up or down, as the market dictates.
Our office does not collect taxes on real property (agricultural land, vacant land, residences, commercial and all other types of improvements). Real property taxes are collected by the Treasurer's Office.
However, Mobile Home taxes and Business Personal Property taxes are assessed and collected by the Assessor.
When I get my tax valuation notice in July, how do I file an appeal?
The appeal process is for assessed value, not taxes. If your opinion of value differs from what is on your Notice, please contact the Assessor's office. The Assessor determines value. We will go over the information we have on file for accuracy, and explain how we arrived at your value.
If you still disagree, please click on the link to Clerk Auditor for Board of Equalization (BOE) form. You must provide an estimate of value and include evidence to support that value, i.e., current appraisal; recent sales of comparable properties; closing statements. All evidence must be as of January 1st each year. In other words for 2013 tax year, use 2012 sales comparables.
