The Wayne County Assessment Office maintains and updates real property assessment records and prepares and distributes yearly tax rolls used by Wayne County, all 28 municipalities and the 6 school districts located within the County. Property assessments are used by all taxing bodies to generate tax revenue used to pay for services performed. The Assessment Office does not set millage rates or collect property taxes.
The County is in the process of transferring its tax map data from mylar (hard copies) to a digital Geographic Information System (GIS). Eventually, the tax map maintenance will be processed on the GIS System only. The Assessment Office and the 911 Mapping Coordinator are in the process of GIS map production. They will maintain several important layers of data such as municipal, road and property lines. As new subdivisions are recorded, the Mapping Department adds them to the GIS parcel layer.
