Why Are Property Assessments Important?
 
Property assessments are necessary to equitably distribute the tax burden among all property owners based upon the market value of their property. Properties are appraised so that some of the costs associated with providing services, such as public education, fire and police protection, roads and utilities, can be allocated to property owners in proportion to the market value of their individual properties.
 
Important Legal Dates on the Assessment Calendar

Taxable status date: March 1
Tentative assessment roll filed: May 1
