What does the tax administrator do?

The County Tax Assessor lists and values all real and personal property subject to ad valorem (according to value) taxation on an assessment roll each year. The primary responsibility of the Assessor is to find the fair market value of your property so that you pay only your fair share of the taxes.


To arrive at the fair market value of your property, the Assessor must know what willing sellers and willing buyers are doing in the marketplace. She must also keep current on the cost of construction in the area and any changes in zoning, financing, and economic conditions which may affect property values.
