Tax Assessor Information
The function of the Tax Assessor’s office is to evaluate land and the buildings for taxing purposes. The Assessor places a value on the property which is multiplied by the municipal tax rate. There are many factors which affect a property owner’s assessment; primarily it’s location, size and condition. Some examples of changes that can increase the assessment are: additions, porches, garages, bathrooms, central air conditioning, fireplaces, in-ground swimming pools, finished basements, decks, patios, etc. Please note: if a property owner removes any of the above items, their assessment can be decreased. Some property owners (Veterans, Senior Citizens, and Disabled residents) are eligible for property tax deductions. For more information, please call 456-6934. To apply for these deductions, you must fill out and file an application with the Tax Assessor’s office during business hours.
