to the DeSoto County Property Appraiser web site.
The Property Appraiser of DeSoto County is charged with placing a fair and equitable market value on every parcel of property
both real estate and tangible in our county. Many people believe the Property Appraiser determines the amount of taxes a property
owner will pay but this is not the case.
The job of property appraiser is to value property for tax purposes. The taxing authorities, which include
the Board of County Commissioners, School Board, City Council, and the Water Management District, set the tax rate for all property and therefore
the amount of taxes to be assessed.
Our goal is to serve the people of DeSoto County with outstanding customer service.
