In general terms, Assessors value personal and real property each year for the purpose of taxation using acceptable methods of valuation. 

It is hard to overstate the importance of assessors in the administration of the property tax and, indirectly, the vitality of local governments.  Assessed values determine the distribution of property tax levies among taxpayers.  Assessed values must be accurate in order to meet the requirements set forth by the legislature and state regulations.
