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

Plats now available online!

In conjuction with the Jefferson County Clerk's Office, we are providing a view to the plats online!
Currently available are Plat Books 1 to 25. We will be adding more plats as time allows. The plats are searchable by Subdivision, Plat book and page and Envelope number.
Thank you to Jennifer S. Maghan for her cooperation and making this collaboration possible!

 
2016 Maps are now available
2016 Parcels are now available on the GIS map 
New GIS server hosting 2013 tax maps

Our new GIS server hosting the 2013 tax maps is now available to registered users.

We hope you like the new look and feel of the maps. They are quite an improvement over the older server.

 
Plats are now implemented with HTML5/Javascript

This means it will work on any device (Computer, Tablet or Phone). Stay tuned for the maps also moving to a Javascript implementation rather than flash. Flash will not work with your phones, tablets or Windows 10. So I am working to upgrade everything to Javascript. This one was the easiest so it occurred first.

 
Congratulations Tori!

Our own Mapping Specialist, Victoria (Tori) Myers named the 2012 WVAGP (West Virginia Association of Geospatial Professionals) Professional of the Year.
