Q: Why would the County Assessor’s Office refer me to the County Clerk’s office to obtain the recording date for my deed?

A: Whenever an individual wishes to assess property into his or her name, the Assessor requires a legal instrument proving ownership. If the document has been recorded with the County Clerk (Recording and Filing Dept.), the property owner can obtain a copy of proof of ownership. If you are recording your real estate contract, mortgage, warranty deed, or other proof of ownership for the first time, the document must then be presented to the County Assessor’s Office to ensure that the new owner’s name and mailing address is recorded onto the property assessment records. Exemptions may be added into assessment records.
The Recording and Filing office phone number is 468-1290 and the Assessor's office is 222-3700.
