Frequently Asked Questions - Assessor

Why are my taxes higher than my neighbor's taxes when our houses are so similar? 

Taxes are based on Taxable Value, not Assessed Value. Even though your homes may be similar, and you may have similar Assessed Values; your Taxable Values may not be similar at all, because Taxable Values are reflective of when each home last sold.
