What are your rights and responsibilities?

If your opinion of the value of your property differs from the Assessor's, by all means, go to the office and discuss the matter. The staff will be glad to answer your questions and explain how to appeal if you cannot come to an agreement. The Assessor's Office relies on the property owner for information. You can help by providing accurate information.

If you feel taxes are too high, you should make your opinion known to the proper taxing authorities. Be sure to take advantage of the state's property tax relief programs. We're here to help you. Just ask!
