The Assessor's office values properties each year and physically inspects 1/6th of the county every year. We are currently in revaluation cycle 5. This area ranges from the Tucannon to the East side of the North Touchet road. The pink area on the map is our current inspection cycle.
We inspect new construction countywide yearly and do this during the summer.
The county Assessor determines the value of all taxable real and personal property in the county for the purpose of distributing tax liabilities in an equitable manner.
