How is property assessed?

Real Property assessments are based on market values and are assessed yearly by the Assessing Department. Assessment notices are mailed to taxpayers of record in late February of each year. Personal Property assessments originate from a filing of a statement by the taxpayer. If a Personal Property statement is not furnished, the assessor is authorized to assess such amount of Personal Property as deemed reasonable and just. The business property owner is required by law to report the value of property owned on a Personal Property statement provided by the assessor.
