Chance to Have Property Tax Questions Answered

Deschutes County Assessor Scot Langton and his  staff will hold Tax Town Hall  meetings beginning next week through November 7 in La Pine, Bend, Sisters  and Redmond. 

The  meetings will  offer an opportunity for residents to ask questions about the taxation system,  how the County appraises property and determines values, and any other questions  that you can think of about your property taxes. Other topics of discussion: Why  did your taxes go Up when the market value of your  property went DOWN?, what  does “maximum” assessed value mean to you, how does Measure 50 and other  legislation affect your property taxes and maximum assessed value now and in  future years?
