In Oregon, property taxes are assessed against real property, machinery and equipment, manufactured structures, business personal property and floating property. Oregon has an ad valorem tax system - the property taxes you pay are based on the value the county assessor establishes for your property.
You should receive your property tax statement sometime in late October. If you disagree with the property values shown on your statement, please contact the Assessor's Office at (541) 276-7111.
Property values may be appealed to the Board of Property Tax Appeals (BOPTA) as prescribed by Oregon law beginning each year the day after tax statements are mailed (middle to end of October), but not later than December 31 unless December 31 falls on a weekend or legal holiday. If December 31 falls on a weekend or holiday, the filing deadline moves to the next business day.. Visit the State of Oregon's Property Tax Appeals website to learn more about your appeal rights, the appeal process and to download forms and instructions.
