The last general reassessment was conducted for the 12 pay 13 property tax bills.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect from a reassessment?
A reassessment will result in a new value being established for your property. This new value will replace the value currently on your property and will be the basis used for taxing property. Please remember that an increase in property value does not automatically mean an increase in your property taxes.
How is a reassessment conducted?
A data collector will visit each property to gather information. Each of your data collectors will carry a photo identification card. After checking to see if anyone is home, our data collector will conduct the following for each property.
- Take a picture of the outside of your property.
- Identify any physical changes and improvements to the property.
- Record any necessary measurements.
How can I make sure my assessment is correct?
First of all, talk with the Assessor's Office. They want to do the best possible job. Please don't ignore notices, letters to your property.
