How is your assessment determined?

To arrive at "full and fair cash value" for your property, the Assessors must know what "willing sellers" and "willing buyers" are doing in the market place. The objective is to gather the most current information and data on the cost of construction, changes in use and economic conditions which may affect property value. The Assessor collects records and analyzes a great deal of information about properties and market characteristics in order to estimate the fair market value. The market estimate or assessment should reflect the status of the property as of January 1. For example January 1, 2009 is the assessment date for Fiscal Year 2010
