The Assessing Department is responsible for the analysis of the title to and valuation of all taxable Real Estate and Personal Property located in the City of Auburn. The Department maintains records setting forth ownership information, descriptions of land and buildings, the valuation of all properties, taxable and exempt, property tax maps showing lot dimensions and lists of all taxable personal property used in business and manufacturing. This information provides the basis for the valuation and tax commitment process from which revenues are raised to run the City of Auburn.
Records in the Assessing Department are available to the public during normal business hours and on our website. Property information cards contain the land, building and site improvement information used to determine valuation. The valuation book contains a record of all the assessments in the city. The sales record book contains a record of the properties that have been sold setting forth the Grantor, Grantee, date of sale, property tax map number and the sale price.
