What is the correlation between the County Assessor, County Trustee and the County Board of Equalization?
The County Assessor establishes the assessed valuation on your property.

The County Trustee calculates and collects taxes on your property based upon its assessed value.

The County Board of Equalization is a completely independent entity that handles the "appeal process and hearing" of your disputed assessment valuation. The Board is separate from and independent of the Assessor.
