How is property assessed?

Property is assessed by studying market sales of real estate properties for the calendar year preceding the assessment date (January 1st). By law the Assessors are required to value all property at 100% of full and fair cash value. Properties are not individually valued or appraised, but are assessed through the use of a mass appraisal system.
