Assessor's Office is composed of seven divisions:
The Administrative Division
the Assessor's Office provides the leadership and strategic
vision to support the employees of the department so they
can achieve their departmental missions. This includes human
resource activity, procurement, budget, legislative bill
tracking and intergovernmental communication. The newest development
in this area is the formation of the internal audit group
that provides the County Assessor with an independent consulting
and investigative function to examine, evaluate, inspect,
critique and report assessor activities.
The Litigation Division
provides all support to the County Attorney and Board of Supervisors to arrive
at valuation and classification decisions that have been appealed to the Judicial
Branch of government for resolution.
The GIS/Mapping Division provides
spatial data for the Assessor's Office and for other County
agencies so they can analyze geographic information.
The Information Services Division
in cooperation with the Office of Enterprise Technology, manages
all aspects of the computing environment for the Assessor's
office including data center operations, end-user support,
web presence and applications/database maintenance.
The Personal Property Division
establishes and maintains accurate data on each account
for the tax rolls. This includes mobile home valuations.
The Real Property/CAMA Division
is responsible for assessing and valuing residential and commercial
real estate as well as vacant land within the County. The
valuation process includes mass appraisal methodology to create
valuation models for various property types. These valuation
models are then used to accurately and efficiently determine
property values throughout the County. They provide property
characteristics and valuation information to external and
internal customers, ensuring compliance with Arizona State
laws. The Real Property Division also handles administrative
appeals regarding assessments.
The Support Services Division
is the public face of the agency and provides important administrative
and coordination functions for the county government and citizens.
These include records management, processing requests, deeds
processing, tax roll corrections and registrations. The four public
service counters throughout the County and information
resource functions provide reliable data to the public, government
agencies, and internal customers.
