Orange County Property Appraiser
The Orange County Property Appraiser is responsible for identifying, locating, and fairly valuing all property, both real and personal, within the county for tax purposes.
The Orange County Property Appraiser’s Office tracks ownership changes; maintains maps of parcel boundaries; keeps descriptions of buildings and property characteristics up to date; accepts and approves applications from individuals eligible for exemptions and other forms of property tax relief; and analyzes trends in sales prices, construction costs, and rents to best estimate the value of all assessable property.
The Orange County Property Appraiser's Office uses state-of-the-art technological approaches to the valuation process. Our computer-assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) system ensures that fair values are established for all Orange County property owners and our Geographic Information System (GIS), provides detailed and up-to-date property ownership maps for field inspectors.
The constitutional office of the property appraiser retains a clear and distinct separation from the county government aside from its inclusion in the county charter.
