How is my property’s assessment determined?

For most non-farm property, the township assessor estimates the fair cash value of the property as of January 1 of the assessment years, based on the three prior years of sales in that jurisdiction / area / subdivision. The Chief County Assessor then equalizes all assessments to achieve uniform valuations throughout the County. Information about farm assessments can be found on the Farm Assessment page.
