ASSESSOR’S STAFF IS OUT VISITING PROPERTIES

The Assessor’s Office is mandated by the WV State Tax Department to conduct a reappraisal of all properties in
Raleigh County, which we perform in a three-year cycle. In accordance with this mandate, our Appraisers are out
now viewing properties for reappraisal in Shady Spring District. Later this year they will also be reviewing
properties in Lester, Mabscott, Marsh Fork, Rhodell & Sophia.
However, due to the threat presented by COVID-19, the Appraisers will remain in their
vehicles and will not make any attempts to speak with taxpayers at this time.
Any properties with new construction will be reviewed later in the fall.
The Assessor’s Office vehicles are white and are clearly marked with the Assessor’s seal on the doors. All staff also carry proper identification.
When it is safe to do so and the social distancing restrictions are lifted, our usual procedures for reappraisal and maintenance of properties will resume.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding our reappraisal policies, please do not hesitate to contact the Appraisal Office at (304) 255-9181.
