The Assessor is responsible for identifying all property in the Township, and assigning an assessed or taxable value. The Assessor's Office also processes all ownership changes, deed transactions, and deductions/exemptions (e.g., senior citizens, disabled persons and veterans).
The main function of the Assessor’s office is to value all property in the municipality for tax purposes. The ultimate goal is to assess the properties so all property owners will pay their fair share of the revenue needed to finance the schools, municipality, county government and fire district.
The State Constitution requires all properties be assessed at "fair market" value. Therefore, it is essential to maintain assessments, keep up with market prices and cope with inflation. At times, market conditions warrant Revaluation or Reassessment programs to maintain "fair market value".
