Frequently Asked Questions

Who determines the amount of my property taxes?
The County Assessor 1st determines the value of your property. The County Auditor then applies the general tax rate of 1% and adds any special assessment or bond amounts to the tax roll. These computed amounts become the total property taxes.

The County Assessor can be contacted at 707-445-7663, and the County Auditor at 707-476-2452.

The Tax Collector does not determine the amount of your property taxes.
