Assessing Department

The assessed value represents 50% of the fair market value of the property and the taxable value is the value on which property taxes are calculated. The taxable value can only increase every year based on the inflation rate or 5% whichever is less, except when physical changes have been made to the property or when a transfer of ownership occurs. Every year in May the Assessing staff will begin inspecting properties that have sold or have active building permits in preparation of the following year assessment roll.
