Assessor Data Discrepancies
For more information regarding how to change assessor data discrepancies like property ownership name and improvements for properties in Multnomah County, please contact Multnomah County Assessment, Recording & Taxation at (503) 988-3326 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Building Permits & Assessment Timeline
Building permits are worked by the Multnomah County Assessment, Recording & Taxation office in the year following issuance. The assessment date for a property is January 1st of each year. If a house was not built prior to January 1 then you will not see anything updated on the record until the following year. Assessment values are not finalized until mid-September of each year following the January 1 assessment date. Once the appraiser has done the site visit and inspection, it typically is only a few weeks until the records are updated.
Although the data presented here is largely the work of hundreds of dedicated individuals, the site and the applications within it were built and are maintained by Corporate GIS (CGIS), and the Bureau of Technology Services (BTS) at The City of Portland.
