Property Title Assessment and Administration

 What we do:

Assessment Technicians  are responsible for locating and identifying ownership on all taxable real property. In addition, they manage the public service counter and oversee quality control; approve and enroll all legal property tax exemptions and verify legal documents. Homeowner exemptions and other constitutional exemptions are compiled and applied to the secured supplemental, and unsecured assessment rolls. 

The Mission of the Property Title and Administration Division is to support the production of the annual assessment roll by efficiently providing accurate and timely property ownership, reappraisal, and appeal information to the Real Property, and Business Divisions in accordance with legal mandates. We also provide accurate, timely assessment information and explanations, in a courteous manner, to the general public and other public agencies; and timely exempt qualifying; exempt properties/property owners.
