The Board of Assessors was established by state law to determine the fair market value of all real and personal property in the county for property tax purposes. Property taxation is based on the concept that persons should share the cost of government according to their ability to pay. In the property tax system, ability to pay is measured by the value of property.
The Board of Assessors determines the estimate of property value and this process is called the “Appraised Value” of property. The board then applies the statutory 40% to that appraisal to generate the “Assessed Value” on which taxes are based.
