from the Assessor
Welcome to the Grant County Assessor’s Web site. This site has been prepared
to help you better understand the functions of the Assessor’s office. The
information contained herein will assist you, as a property owner and taxpayer,
in understanding the assessment procedures, tax collection and distribution
of your tax dollars.
The Assessor does not establish the dollar amount of taxes required
nor does the Assessor bill or collect taxes. The voters, the State limitations
and assessed value determines the tax rate for each taxing district.
The Assessor is responsible for checking the amounts asked for by the
taxing districts to make sure they are within the limits set by state
law. We also compile all the different levy rates in your taxing areas
to determine the total tax rate for your property. It is the responsibility
of the Grant County Treasurer to bill and collect the required taxes.
There are several lesser-known functions the Assessor’s office
performs. These include maintaining maps of all of Grant County, including
all cities and towns within the county. These maps represent the boundaries
of each parcel in Grant County. The office records and updates the ownership
and legal description of every piece of property within Grant County.
This requires the Grant County Assessor’s office to track and
maintain approximately 61,570 parcels for the benefit of all the citizens
of the county.
It is the responsibility of the Grant County Assessor, together with
her staff, to insure that all property owners are treated in a fair,
equitable and impartial manor in accordance with our state laws. It
is our sincere desire to serve and support you in a professional, effective,
responsible and courteous manner.
The Grant County Assessor’s office welcomes your inquiries and concerns on
how your property is assessed. As your Assessor, I am committed to serve and
assist you personally in any matters dealing with this office. Also, I will
be available to speak to and/or answer questions for interested groups. Please
contact the Grant County Assessor’s office for more information.
