It is the responsibility of the La Paz County Assessor's Office to locate, identify
and appraise at current market value, all locally assessable property subject to
ad valorem taxes. We maintain property ownership, parcel maps, exemptions, as well
as mobile homes and business personal property.
Our office works closely with, depends on, and appreciates many other departments
and agencies. We receive deed information from the Recorder's Office and permit information
from Community Development, Town of Parker and Town of Quartzsite, just to name a
For example, when a permit is issued, a copy is mailed or delivered to our office.
From that permit, we make a complete physical inspection of the property and place
the new improvement(s) on the tax rolls, and any other improvements not previously
listed on the roll. The improvements could range from a mobile home in a park to
a packing shed on a farm or a two-story house in town.
We are here for the taxpayers benefit. Any time a taxpayer has a concern or question
regarding any function of our office, we attempt to get them answers. Whether it
takes a visit out to the property, a phone call or just an explanation of a very
complex appraisal system, we attempt to address the issue.
Are there any questions YOU have?
Stop by and see us or give us a call.
