The Assessor's Role:
The primary job of the assessor's office is actually narrower than most taxpayers believe. Their task is to value and classify each property in the county. An assessor doesn't decide how much tax is to be paid nor do they establish tax rates. Estimated Market Value is the assessor's estimate of a property's actual market value, defined as the most probable price well informed buyers and sellers would agree to without either party being unduly forced to buy or sell on the assessment date, January 2, each year.
The assessor's office maintains property information to assist in annual valuation estimates. This data is available on Beacon. Appraisers review the information for each property in the county at least once every 5 years to ensure accuracy. This allows comparing all unsold properties to properties that have sold recently to help estimate market value.
