The Assessors are responsible for measuring the value of real and personal property and insuring that owners of such property all pay their fair and equitable share of the tax burden based upon those values.
The Assessors are also responsible for meeting the certification requirements of the Department of Revenue.
To meet these requirements, the assessors are obliged to revalue all properties yearly, and once every five years undergo a state recertification audit. Every ten years properties are also required to be inspected.
In addition to certification duties, the Board also makes themselves available to assist homeowners and those who utilize public information such as appraisers, realtors, lawyers etc. Our overall mission is public service.
