- Property Taxes
The Jefferson County Assessor’s Office serves you as a homeowner by fairly, ethically, and accurately determining the value of your property. This process takes place every two years and is called reappraisal. The Assessor’s Office does not set taxes. In fact, the assessment process is only one small step in the process of calculating property tax bills.
Your property taxes are determined by multiplying the tax rate (set by local government taxing entities) by the assessed or taxable value of your property.
The assessor operates on a timetable established by law known as the assessment calendar.
