Assessment Notices

An assessment notice is not a tax bill and does not set your taxes; it assigns an estimate of market value to your property. Local taxing jurisdictions such as school districts, cities, library districts and counties each set their own levies (tax rates). The exact impact upon your individual tax bill cannot be calculated until this fall when the taxing jurisdictions, including state and local governments set their final levies for the year.


The actual tax levies will be set this fall by your local school boards, city councils, water districts, fire districts, library districts, the County Legislature and other taxing jurisdictions. Your real property tax bill will be calculated based on the following general formula:

Market Value x Classification % = Assessed Value x Tax Levy (as determined by City, School District, etc.) = Tax Bill



Classification Percentages

  • Residential - 19%
  • Agricultural - 12%
  • Commercial and All Other - 32%

Board of Equalization/Formal Review

The Board of Equalization takes appeals on Real Estate and Tangible Personal Property for the current year with the purpose of equalizing assessments throughout Jackson County. If you disagree with your property assessment, you have the right to appeal the market value on your assessment to the Jackson County Board of Equalization. The deadline to file a Board of Equalization (BOE) appeal was July 31, 2023.
