Important Alerts for Tax Notices: 

  • We are currently processing documents that were recorded with the Jefferson County Clerk & Recorder in November 2019. Ownership changes that have occurred since then may not be reflected on Property Record Search results. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
  • If you bought a new property in 2019 and have not received your tax notice, your transfer probably has not been processed yet. The Treasurer’s Office will continuously mail out tax notices to new owners as the Assessor’s Office finishes processing them. The notice above will be updated to reflect our progress until all deeds through December 2019 are completed.
  • If you receive a tax notice for a property you sold in 2019, please disregard it. Once the ownership records are updated, the new owner will be notified of the taxes due.
  • If you did not receive a tax notice for property you owned before 2019, you may find the tax notice using the Treasurer’s Property Records Search Application. Please search by address or PIN/Schedule#, if known.

The Jefferson County Assessor’s Office provides quality customer service by being courteous, respectful and informative while identifying, describing and valuing all property within Jefferson County in a fair, ethical, accurate and professional manner.

The Assessor is available anytime to present the Re-Appraisal Valuation and Assessment Process. Please contact the Assessor’s Office to schedule.
