Appraisal Department

The Assessing Department will be available to assist any taxpayers via phone. Staff is continuing canvass work in the Nikiski area. You can identify them by their florescent vests, ID and signs on their vehicles. We do not want to alarm the public, but for precautionary measure, our staff may be wearing rubber gloves and/or masks.

At this time, we have put some restrictions in place for our staff. They will not be doing any interior canvass inspections. If a property owner requests an interior, we will make note and contact the owner at a later date. Any property owner that wishes to review file information may do so by visiting the Assessing Department website or calling the Assessing Department. We have also requested the public and staff keep a 6' distance.
