The Assessor’s roll in the tax cycle is valuation of property. We do not issue your tax bill. If you feel your house has any errors in its assessment or if you feel that you are missing an exemption please contact our office so we can make corrections. You cannot appeal your tax year 2016 assessment at this time. Tax year 2017 notices will be mailed later this summer and you will have 30 days from publication to appeal your assessment. We can currently only fix errors for tax year 2016 assessments.
