The Hamilton County Assessor of Property sets an appraised value on each parcel of land located in Hamilton County and any improvements on it for  assessment purposes except for public utility and railroad property whose value is determined by the Office of State Assessed Properties.

The Assessor's office also determines the value of the tangible personal property of businesses.

The office hears property owner appeals relative to the value the office has set on their real and personal property. If the appeal cannot be resolved to the satisfaction of the property owner, appeals may be filed with the Hamilton County Board of Equalization.

Assessments provide the basis for determining the amount of real and personal property tax the property owner must pay; however, other offices and entities substantially influence the amount of tax the property owner ultimately pays. The county or city legislative body determines the tax rate.
