The Assessor's Principle function is to assess all property with Twin Falls County at a current market value and to maintain records of the ownership of all property within the county. The Assessor is also charged with registering motor and recreational vehicles and with disbursing the applicable licenses and permits.
The Ad valorem (property) tax is the primary source of revenue for local government, public schools and other taxing entities that serve and protect our communities. This method of allocating the tax burden is based on the value of taxable property. "Property tax" provides the most stable, predictable source of revenue for local government, since it is not subject to the fluctuations of the economy as are sales and income taxes. It is the Assessor's duty to asses the properties with the county uniformly and to the specifications of Idaho law so that all properties are taxes fairly and equitably.
