Fill out the property record form, and submit it to our office for review. You may be contacted by a staff member from the Office of the City Assessor if there are questions concerning the information about your property. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of the City Assessor at 329-4433 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Assessor is responsible for estimating the value of your property, which determines your assessed valuation. The Assessor does not determine your property taxes. Instead, the assessed valuation determines the overall share of taxes you pay. Because your assessment affects your property taxes, it is important that your assessed value be accurate and fair. It is also important that you understand how the value of your property is estimated and what can cause property values to change.
Almost all of the information in the Assessor’s Office is public record. The amount paid in taxes is also public record and it is available on the City of Portage website. Access the Assessor’s tax look up site and you may look up information by name, address or parcel number. Square footage and 2017 values are available. 2017 values will not be posted online until the roll has been reviewed and confirmed following the March Board of Review. Preliminary information is available at the Assessing Department counter beginning February 15, 2017.

This will change the address for both assessments and taxes. It will not, however, change the water billing address. You must contact the Portage Treasury Office at 269-329-4455 separately.
