Tax Assessor

The Tax Assessor’s Office provides the information necessary to insure an accurate valuation of properties and equitable distribution of the real estate tax levy.

The evaluation and assessment techniques are a continuous process that record all the changes in the status of a property. Values for all property and improvements are established from this record with taxes levied proportionally amongst all property owners.
