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
