Idaho Association of Counties has been collaborating with the Idaho School Boards Association, Idaho Association of Highway Districts, and Association of Idaho Cities on a series of educational videos about growth, new construction, and property taxes. The videos can be found here:

The County Assessor is an elected official whose primary responsibility is to determine the market value of all taxable property within the county for the purpose of equitable distribution of property tax.  The amount of taxes required is not determined by the Assessor but the individual taxing districts such as Cities, Schools, Highway districts, etc.  Taxes are collected by the County Treasurer.  If rising property taxes are a concern to you, be sure to vote and attend your taxing districts’ budget hearings.

The Assessor is also charged with registering motor and recreational vehicles, and with disbursing the applicable licenses and permits.  The office is open from 8:30 AM until 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.  

The Assessor’s office strives to provide the most efficient service to our constituents and achieve the greatest level of productivity to the county.  The Assessor’s office welcomes your inquiries and concerns.
