The mission of the Yavapai County Assessor’s Office is to administer our duties in a manner that assures public confidence in our accuracy, productivity, and fairness. We perform the following major functions to fulfill our mission:
- Discover, list and value uniformly all taxable and nontaxable property in Yavapai County.
- Determine proper legal class for all properties based on the current use of the property.
- Comply with the legal requirements for processing assessment appeals in a timely manner.
- Determine the eligibility for property tax exemptions, senior freezes, and other taxpayer programs.
- Provide current assessment related information to the community and to government agencies.
- Work to improve the property tax laws in State of Arizona.
We will treat everyone with respect, compassion and dignity and will be guided by the principles of fairness and honesty.
The Yavapai County Assessor’s Office is responsible for locating, identifying and appraising all assessable properties subject to ad valorem taxes. The County Assessor is also responsible for notifying each property owner of their values, between January 1 and March 1 of every year. This requirement is met by mailing out Notice of Value letters and cards. If significant changes are made to the property after January 1, a property owner may receive a Notice of Change letter or card through the mail on or before September 30th.
The Assessor’s Office strives to value all properties accurately, fairly and uniformly according to
Arizona State Statutes and Department of Revenue Guidelines. A list of all taxable properties, also known as the Tax Assessment Roll is kept by the Assessor.
The Assessor does not set tax rates or collect taxes. The tax rates are set by the County Board of Supervisors, and the taxes are collected by the County Treasurer’s Office.
