Property Taxes

Tax Usage
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.

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.

Real property is revalued every odd-numbered year. Personal property is revalued every year. Property tax calculations consist of several components:
  • Actual value of the property
  • Assessed value
  • Assessment rate
  • Property classification
  • Tax rate
