Duties and Responsibilities of the Property Appraiser
The Santa Rosa County Property Appraiser is primarily responsible for identifying, locating and valuing all property within the county for ad valorem tax purposes. He is also responsible for administering exemptions, mapping all parcels and classifying agricultural land.
Being custodian of certain county records, the property appraiser must maintain property ownership records, subdivision plats, ownership maps, sales data records, and prior tax rolls. These records are accessible on our website to provide taxpayers with a wealth of data such as building size, building components, a description of its components, property characteristics, and zoning.
The property appraiser's office is a primary source of information and shares this data with numerous persons on a daily basis.
