The County Assessor is responsible for valuing all real and personal property, including mobile homes, residential and commercial properties and agricultural land for property tax purposes.

The Assessor determines the equitable value of property to ensure that each taxpayer pays only his or her share of the taxes. Anyone who disagrees with changes in the actual value of real property can object or file a protest with the Assessor’s Office.

2017/2018 Property Valuation

What is a Reappraisal?

  • Property is valued every two years for property tax purposes.
  • According to state law, only sales from the study period can be used to value residential property.
  • Property is valued as of an appraisal date –June 30, 2016.

Your Notice of Valuation

  • On May 1, the Assessor’s Office mails each property owner a notice of the appraised value of their property. Remember, the value stated on your Notice of Valuation is an estimate of your property’s worth on June 30, 2016.

Your Rights of Appeal

  • If you feel that your value is incorrect after reviewing your notice, you may appeal your property valuation to the Assessor between May 1 and June 1.

How are Property Taxes Calculated?

  • Property taxes are calculated by first multiplying the actual value of your property by the statewide assessment rate to arrive at the assessed value.

Agricultural Land Valuation

  • The actual value of agricultural land, exclusive of improvements is based solely on the earning or productive capacity of the land, capitalized at the statutory rate of 13%, minus expenses.
