This website may be down from approximately 5:15PM to 7:00 PM today due to County Network Maintenance. 

One of our primary battery backups has had an electronics failure, is no longer operating properly, and must be replaced.   

When are we doing this:    TODAY
Monday, October 26, 2015  starting at approximately 5:15pm until approximately 7:00pm

What we are doing:

Replacing the failed Dell backup unit with an APC unit to manage short term power outages and condition power supplied to our network infrastructure.

Why we are doing this:

The battery backups are required to ensure consistent power is supplied to our network equipment.  This includes conditioning the power during “brownouts” or “spikes”, and during the short amount of time the emergency generator requires to power up in the event of a total outage.

Expected Consequences of this service:
Because this is a primary battery backup supplying power to our switching network there will be an outage.

This will cause loss of access to various parts of the network such as email, applications and documents.

Welcome to the Jefferson County West Virginia Assessor's Office Website.

Angela (Angie) L. Banks, Assessor

 I hope you find that the information provided is helpful. My staff and I are working diligently to make the office more efficient and to provide fair and equal taxation for all citizens of Jefferson County. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my office. The Assessor oversees the process of placing fair market value on real property and personal property, and maintains property records such as transactions and mapping. The purpose and role of the Assessor’s Office is clear and concise: to place a fair market value on real estate and personal property for both residences and businesses.

While the Assessor does not determine the tax rate or collect taxes, the office does handle certain resident disagreements. If property owners do not agree with their property appraisals, they may meet with the Assessor's appraisal office for a resolution. Learn more about the Assessor's Office and its operations through links on the menu above.

Sincerely, Angie Banks, Assessor
