Estimating Market Value

Property values change continuously with fluctuating economic conditions. In addition to market changes, numerous physical changes affect the value of land and buildings. All factors are considered in estimating the value of property. This requires physical inspection of all property subject to assessment.

Classifying Property

The assessor also determines the classification, or use, of each property. Each classification is taxed at a different percentage of market value. These percentages are set by the state legislature.
