How does the County determine my assessment?
Assessments are derived annually using comparable sales that recorded up to June 30 prior to the assessment date. The assessed values represent 100% of the full, unencumbered fee simple market value. The assessor uses acceptable mass appraisal methods and standards to derive market value. If you feel there is an error with your assessment please call our office to speak with an appraiser.
