County Assessor - Taxation


Taxing authorities such as the State Legislature, School Board, County Commission and City Councils set tax rates and levy taxes. Levy rates differ according to the class of property. In West Virginia, there are four classes of property:

Class I: all property formerly classified as Class I is exempt.
Class II: all property owned, used, and occupied by the owner exclusively for residential purposes and farms occupied and cultivated by their owners or tenants.
Class III: all other real or personal property situated outside of municipalities (vacant land and buildings, rental property, vehicles, commercial real estate, equipment, inventory).
Class IV: all other real or personal property situated within municipalities (vacant land and buildings, rental property, vehicles, commercial real estate, equipment, inventory).
