Assessment and Tax Rolls

1858-[ongoing]

Series documents the assessment of real and personal property, the determination of tax liability, and the collection of county taxes. Assessment, tax, and delinquent tax records are variously labeled as rolls, lists, or summaries. Records show property owner; description and value of urban and agricultural land, personal property, and livestock; assessments, equalizations, and taxes due; and notations on payment and delinquency in payment of taxes. Beginning with 1900, counties have only been required to retain permanently those assessment and tax rolls for years ending in "0" and "5."

More recent assessment and tax roll information is maintained electronically in the Assessment and Taxation Office. Preservation microfilm of the information is stored at the Oregon State Archives, Security Copy Depository, which provides no public access.
