Tax Assessing

Property taxes are vital to the operation of our community; taxes on real & personal property and motor vehicles account for more than 50% of the revenue collected.  These funds support our schools, community colleges, emergency services, fire, police & health departments, libraries, social services, veteran services, parks & recreation and many other community agencies and programs.
