Openness and transparency contribute to a sense of fairness. Transparency is achieved when the system is understandable. Simplicity improves transparency. Transparency also goes hand in hand with openness. In an open system, taxpayers can easily obtain information, ask questions, lodge appeals, and make payments. Transparency improves accountability and is a characteristics of democratic government.
As Tax Assessor, I am required to annually locate, class and assess all taxable property within Harrison County. My office is responsible for setting fair, uniform and accurate values for over 100,000 parcels of real and personal property. We are also charged by the Board of Supervisors to maintain current ownership maps of the county. In addition to these appraisal duties, we work daily with local and national agencies to promote the economic well being of Harrison County and its citizens.
As your Tax Assessor I want to provide all property owners in Harrison County the information they need to better understand the assessment process as well as their rights and responsibilities. This new web site is only a part of our ongoing commitment to create a more open and accessible office.
My staff is constantly looking for ways to improve the way we do our job. We want to make it easier for property owners to understand and participate in the determination of their property values as we want to provide the fairest, most accurate assessments possible.
I hope you will continue to visit our web site as we begin to expand its database.Paula Ladner
