For those impacted recently by the Mosier Creek fire, you may be eligible for a reduction in property tax.  An application is required to be considered for this reduction.

Applications must be received in our office 60 days after the date the property was damaged or destroyed, or by June 30, 2022, whichever is later.   We recommend that you fill out and submit an application as soon as possible.

We encourage you to contact our office to speak to an appraiser regarding any damage or destruction.  An appraiser will need to conduct a site visit to verify the damage or destruction.  Our office phone number is 541-506-2510.
