Have you ever wondered what really is displayed on your tax bill?

 

Scot Langton, Deschutes County Assessor is holding a "Tax Town Hall" in each Deschutes County city; an open forum to answer questions and discuss your tax bill.  "We've got the property tax insert, the 4 page thing we've put into each of the tax bills. And that's kind of a grouping of some of those questions that we typically get. 'Why do my taxes go up when the market value of my property value went down?' This year we're also putting maximum assessed value, the Measure 50 on the tax statements. We have some verbiage explaining what that is and why."

 

Langton says there will also be staff available to work one on one with anyone who needs help.

 

The town halls are from 5-7 p.m. and locations and dates are:

 

La Pine, Oct. 30: La Pine Justice Court, County Courtroom

Bend, Nov 1: Deschutes Services Center, Barnes/Sawyer Room

Sisters, Nov. 5: City Council Chamber

Redmond, Nov 7: Redmond Fire Hall
