The Chelan County Assessor’s Office invites you to join us at one of our Spring Community Meetings. Please join us to learn more about how we determine the value of property and the trends we are seeing for the 2014 Assessment year.
Chelan County is now annually updating all properties according to market sales, and continues to do physical inspections of every property on a 4-year cycle.
Here you will find historical section maps. They are organized into folders with 6-character names indicating the township and range. Inside you will find TIF files with 8-digit names indicating township, range & section plus a sequence number for cases where a section consists of two or more TIF files
A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an organized collection of computer hardware, software, geographic data, and personnel designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze, and display all forms of geographically referenced information.
Our office is responsible for...
Determining the value of all taxable real and personal property in the county on a fair and equitable basis, along with maintaining accurate and accessible property information, providing timely and accurate assessments for tax purposes, and a detailed parcel map showing all parcels within the County.
These annual valuations reflect the market value estimate for the specified property as of January 1 of the assessment year. Except with respect to new construction (inspected every June & July), the January 1 assessed value is used as the basis for calculating the property taxes that are to be levied and paid in the following tax year. Washington State law requires property to be assessed at 100% of market value.
Your property taxes fund state and county services, including roads, transit, schools, libraries, parks, hospitals, fire and rescue, law enforcement, environmental and social services Information such as parcel numbers, ownership, tax codes, and assessed valuations for all property within the county can be obtained on-line through the property search of the Assessor's web site, or by calling the assessor's office during business hours.
