The assessor is responsible for valuing all real and personal property located in the county using proper appraisal methods and techniques along with the highest standards of professionalism in order to assure statewide equalization in the valuation of real and personal property. The assessor determines the equitable value of property to ensure that each taxpayer pays only his or her fair share of taxes and provides information to the public so they might acquire a better understanding of the appraisal and assessment process.
The assessor is required to send out a notice of valuation each year to property owners. This notice will reflect a value on property for ad valorem purposes.

The Mapper checks all deeds to match to land ownership and the accuracy of the tract descriptions, maps ownership, parcel splits, and other changes. The conversion of the paper maps to digital form is an on-going project with the goal of someday making them available online.
Digital files are not yet ready to present to the public.
