Director of Equalization

County Directors of Equalization are appointed to their office by the board of county commissioners.  Their responsibility is to assess all real property in the county for property tax purposes.  By law, the assessed value must be its full and true or market value.  Persons dissatisfied with their assessment may appeal to their local board of equalization, county board of equalization and ultimately a state review board or directly to circuit court.
