Assessor to Photo Properties; Values Would Double if You Don’t Allow It

The Adair County Tax assessor is starting a new initiative to collect digital photos of every property in the county. Before pictures are taken, tax assessor employees will knock on your door to inform you of what will be done. They will be wearing florescent green shirts with badges showing their affiliation with the Adair County Tax Assessor. Pictures of every structure on your property will be taken. This project will benefit all Adair County residents in cases of a disaster and insurance claims. Photographers will leave the property if they are asked to do so, but the property owner will see the value of their property double which will result in higher taxes that they must pay each year.
