Brief Overview of Assessing

The Assessor is responsible for the valuation of taxable parcels throughout Hope Township. Both real property (land and buildings) and personal property (tangible property held by businesses) are taxable. Real property includes land, land improvements, and structures. Personal property includes furniture and fixtures, machines, and equipment belonging to a business, certain public utilities, structures on leased property, and other similar tangible property. The Assessor maintains property records and develops the assessment roll, land value maps, and economic condition factor maps.
