"As Tax Assessor-Collector I am charged with calculating and collecting on annual property tax bills. I do not establish property values or set tax rates. It is my mission to advocate for all taxpayers to make sure they understand their annual tax statements and have all the exemptions for which they qualify. I will work with those that have hardships to establish viable ways to get their taxes paid as quickly as possible while still maintaining their livelihood." - Jenifer O'Kane
