Morgan County Assessor Information

The Office of the Morgan County Assessor is charged with appraising the value of all real and personal property owned by individuals and companies within Morgan County. The appraised value is used to calculate the property taxes assessed on each parcel of property.

The duty of the County Assessor under the West Virginia Constitution is to determine the value of real and personal property for the purpose of taxation. The role of the Assessor in the property taxation process is frequently misunderstood. It is often said that the Assessor increased the taxes, but in reality the Assessor’s only role is to fairly determine the true and actual appraised (fair market) value of real and personal property and to place in the proper tax class.
