The County Tax Director's primary duty is to assess a value to land and the improvements to the parcels within our jurisdiction. This is all done for taxation. The office also holds the records on property information such as the square footage of a house, lot size, age, number of rooms or ownership chain.
The Tax Director's office also maintains the tax rolls and parcel changes in McKenzie County.
In addition to assessment duties, the County Tax Director is responsible for distributing Mobile Home Moving Permits. There is no charge for moving permits as long as the permit tax is paid current. Moving permits are required to move a manufactured home inside or outside of the county.
