The Assessor’s Office values all locally assessed properties in the county for ad valorem tax purposes. Locally assessed properties include:
Every year the Assessors office sends a notice of value to all owners of property in the county.
For residential properties, the taxable value is listed as the Limited Property Value, which is the lower number on your notice.
Based on the total valuation, every property is then taxed by the appropriate tax authorities, such as:
All theses districts have authority to apply value added taxes to your property.
It is important to know that the Assessor's office does not visit each property in the county on an annual basis. We use a statutory defined process of mass appraisal, which is designed to make properties in an area to be valued similarly.
Upon receiving your notice of value, you have the right to appeal the Full Cash Value. There are several methods to appeal:
1. File a notice with the Assessor's office by mail. Your value will be reviewed by a staff appraiser.
2. File a notice to the County Board of Supervisors. Your appeal will be assigned to a hearing officer and a date will be set where you can appear and present evidence to support your valuation opinion.
3. File a lawsuit in court.
There are specific deadlines for each appeal type. Please check the Assessor's website or call 311 anywhere in Pinal County for specifics.
