How is an assessment determined?
The Assessor's Office studies the market and collects information about properties to estimate the fair market value. Please remember that the Assessor’s Office does not determine the total amount of taxes collected. It is the Assessor’s responsibility to find the fair market value of your property so that you may pay only your fair share of the taxes. The amount of taxes you pay is determined by a tax rate applied to your property’s assessed value. The tax rate is based on the funds needed to provide the services included in the approved city budget. Each year, sometime in October, this tax rate is set and it is reflected on the final tax bill which is due sometime in December.
