Each assessment is established according to fair market value on July 1. This is a legal mandate and the assessor has no authority to cap assessments at a certain percentage increase, or use an average factor to adjust assessments. If you have any questions, please email the Real Estate Assessor's Office.
The assessor has no authority to reduce or abate assessments for the above mentioned reasons. If the assessor were allowed to make such reductions, there could be no uniformity or equity in the assessment system. While assessments cannot be reduced, real estate tax relief may be granted if certain requirements are met. Additional information concerning the requirements for this program may be obtained by calling the Commissioner of the Revenue at 757-926-3535.
