It is the responsibility of the Assessor to locate, identify, and appraise at current market value,
locally assessable property subject to ad valorem taxes and to process exemptions specified
by law. The Assessor has no jurisdiction or responsibility for budgets, tax rates, or amounts
of tax bills. These matters are handled by the various agencies performing these services
supported by property taxes, such as the county governments, city governments,
school districts and other taxing districts.
