Listing Property - The listing Office maintains the listing (inventory) and billing of all real and personal property tax including that on motor vehicles.
Tax Collections - All County taxes are billed and collected by this office. All inquires concerning taxes owed or paid can be directed to the Collections Office.
Land Records - County tax maps are maintained by this office where copies can be purchased by the public. Current real estate ownership is mapped by the plotting of metes and bounds from recorded deeds and plats. Parcel identification numbers are assigned to each piece of real estate.
Appraisal - The Appraisal Office maintains the listings of real estate and improvements thereon. The value of real property is determined by applying the Schedule of Rules, Standards and Values adopted during the previous revaluation.
