The County Assessor is responsible for valuing all real and personal property, including mobile homes, residential, commercial properties, oil and gas, and agricultural land for property tax purposes. The value and classification are based on how the property existed January 1st of every year. Classification is based on actual use, values are determined based on market sales that occurred the prior 2 years. For tax years 2021 and 2022 value was determined using sales that occurred July 1st 2018 through June 30th 2020. This cycle of revaluation (re-appraisal) occurs every 2 years. 2022 is an intervening year, most values will remain the same as the 2021 value unless something has changed on the property.
The Assessor determines the equitable value of property to ensure that each tax payer pays only his or her fair share of the taxes. The Assessor strives to ensure property ownership and land configurations are current, correct and that the proper person receives Notices of Value and the property tax bill.
Anyone who disagrees with changes in the actual value of real property can object or file a protest with the Assessor.
