What is the Open Book?

The Open Book is a window of time where the completed assessment roll is “open” for public inspection so you may compare your assessment with other properties.  There will be sales books listing recent improved property and vacant land sales.   No appointment is needed to view these.   If a taxpayer has any questions regarding their assessment, you may schedule an appointment to talk one-on-one with an assessor where you can discuss how your assessment was developed, verify the physical attributes of your property, express any concerns or present new evidence that you feel should be considered in determining the assessed value.  If you wish to appeal our assessment, it is recommended that you attend the Open Book prior to scheduling an appointment for the Board of Review.  Property and assessment information can also be found on our website at www.assessordata.org.
