Assessment is the valuation of a property based on size, type of construction, amenities and sale prices of similar properties in the area. An appeal process is in place if you disagree with your assessment. Visit the Property Assessment Appeals page for more information.

Property tax bills are calculated by multiplying the net assessed value (assessed value minus any deductions) times the tax rate to get the gross tax. If your property has a homestead exemption multiply that amount by the homestead credit rate and subtract from the gross tax to get net tax. The Auditor's Office calculates the tax bills. The Treasurer's Office prints the bills and collects payment.
