Assessments

Property aSsessments An assessment is a value placed on your land and buildings to determine the fair distribution of property taxes.

The assessed value on your notice is based on the previous year's market conditions (not the current market conditions) and the physical condition and characteristics of the home as of the previous December.

Your assessment notice is not a bill but the assessment value will be used to determine your property tax levy (assessed value x tax rate = property tax levy).
