ASSESS PERSONAL PROPERTY
We’ve provided a link to the www.CountyService.net, which will allow you to assess your personal property online.
The purpose of this site is to provide an efficient method to reassess your personal vehicles with the Assessor’s Office. This site may only be used by individuals who have provided an active email address to the Assessor’s Office and assessed in Craighead County last year.
THE DEADLINE TO COMPLETE YOUR PERSONAL PROPERTY ASSESSMENT IS MAY 31ST. The Assessor’s Office is required by law to add a 10% penalty to your personal property account if you assess after May 31st.
Please note that changes performed in the Assessor’s Office for this year may not be reflected on this site, as records are only updated periodically.
Real Estate Assessment
Real Estate lien date is the first Monday in January every year. All new buildings need to be reported to our office. Craighead County is under a state mandated reappraisal cycle, which requires all property to be reevaluated every five years.
If you are not receiving the $350 homestead credit on your real estate, please call our office to see if you qualify. If you are 100% disabled, you are entitled to freeze your homestead (real estate) at its current value. In order to receive this benefit, we require proof of disability from the Social Security Administration. The real estate value freeze is also available to those who are 65 years or older. We require a copy of your driver’s license or birth certificate for proof of age. These required documents are mandated by our state auditors.
