An assessor is a specialist who calculates the value of property. The value calculated by the assessor is then used as the basis for determining the amounts to be paid or assessed for taxes. The Town of Mohawk's assessor is an appointed official charged with determining the value of each taxable property in our Township; this information is then used to determine the necessary rate of taxation to support the community's annual budget.
Our mission is to serve the taxpayers by efficiently valuing and assessing all real estate for municipal and school tax purposes. Our department maintains the assessment rolls, tax maps, and real estate registry of the ownership for all real estate in the Town of Mohawk. We strive to provide useful information and courteous service to the public.
