County assessors use permanent rates set for all taxing districts in fiscal year 1997–98, when taxes were significantly reduced with a statewide average 17 percent cut in tax levies. Certain types of levies are outside this reduction. The tax rates cannot exceed $15 per $1,000 of real market value. For 1997–98, all property was valued by county assessors at 90 percent of the July 1, 1995, levels. For subsequent years, assessed values are limited to a 3 percent annual growth rate. Construction since July 1, 1995, is valued at the average rate of similar properties in the area.
Special exemptions, tax relief programs and deferrals are available. For more information contact the Curry County assessor’s office at 541–247–7011 x231.
Tax rates are representative of the largest tax code in the city. The rates are expressed as tax liability per $1,000 of assessed property value.
