Assessor

Welcome to the Kootenai County Assessor's Office

Kootenai County has over 93,000 assessable parcels/accounts with a net taxable value of $21.6 billion. We have the second highest net taxable value of all the counties in Idaho. The Census Bureau has estimated our population at 179,800 as of 2021. 

The County Assessor is an elected official whose principal function is to determine the market value of all taxable property within the county for the purpose of equitable distribution of property tax burden. The amount of taxes required is not determined by the Assessor but the individual taxing districts such as Cities, Schools Districts, and Highway Districts. Taxes are collected by the County Treasurer and distributed to the taxing districts.

The mission of the Assessor’s Office is to provide professional, courteous service to the public with regard to the equitable valuation of all properties in Kootenai County, tracking and mapping their ownership, and providing a motor vehicle licensing and titling service for the citizens of our County.
