What is the responsibility of the Assessor´s Office?

Our responsibility is to estimate property values. We do not set the tax rate nor do we collect taxes. It is our duty, by law, to discover all taxable property in Humboldt County, appraise its value, then calculate 35% of that appraised value to arrive at the assessed value. Contact the Assessor's Office for more information.
