BEND, OR -- The County Assessor’s office is conducting reappraisals, this week, in the Deschutes River Woods area. Appraisers will drive through the area in county-issued vehicles and may knock on doors to talk to residents to verify property features like square footage and room count.
County Assessor Scot Langton says the work is part of the routine cycle required by the state to ensure accurate property values used to calculate property taxes. Similar appraisals were conducted last year in Sunriver, and in portions of Redmond in 2014. The work in Deschutes River Woods could last through fall of 2017.
