Assessed property values are determined by taking the market value, as determined by the County Assessor, times the assessment ratio. Assessment ratios are: commercial at 32%, residential at 19% and agricultural at 12%. Tax is paid on each $100 of assessed value. Property values are re-assessed biennially by the County Assessor and the County Collector receives and distributes the taxes to the various taxing authorities.
