It is the duty of the Assessor to locate, identify and value all taxable property within the County. The Assessor is the only locally elected official who is audited annually by the General Assembly to insure compliance with state laws, standards and guidelines in regard to property values and procedures used to determine that all property is being valued fairly and equitably, using generally accepted professional appraisal techniques and methods. We are committed to fairness and work diligently to ensure that no one pays more or less than their appropriate portion of the property tax burden.
The Assessor's Office determines ACTUAL VALUE of property as of a specific date. The appropriate assessment percentage is then applied to determine the ASSESSED VALUE. The Assessed Value is multiplied by the TOTAL MILL LEVY to arrive at the amount of property taxes. The Assessor's office does not set Mill Levies, tax rates or tax amounts.
All property, real and personal, is taxable unless it is specifically exempted by law. Taxation is one of the inherent responsibilities of property ownership. By law, it is ultimately the duty of the owner of such property to see that it is appropriately listed on the assessment rolls.
If you should have any questions or comments about your property, or the tax system in general, please contact this office and we will gladly answer your questions to the best of our ability. Our primary goal is to provide "Fair, Uniform, and Equitable Appraisals, Within the Law".
