2020-2021 Board of Directors
Immediate Past President
The Role of the County Assessor
The county assessor is primarily responsible for determining equitable values on both real and personal property for tax purposes (63-207). However, the office has one other function that is detailed and time-consuming. The assessor acts as the agent of the Department of Idaho Transportation in titling vehicles, and in handling vehicle registrations (49-205 and 67-7008), as well as an agent for the State Department of Parks and Recreation. The law also provides that if the Governor thinks it is necessary to call up a militia, he may order the assessor to carry out a registration of all county residents liable for such service (46-104).
