It is the mission of the Jasper County Tax Assessor’s Office to fairly and equitably discover, list, and value all real and business personal property for the purpose of creating the annual ad valorem tax roll in accordance with applicable Mississippi Statutes.
Unlike many states where the Assessor and Taxing Authorities work together, Mississippi’s Constitution provides a clear separation between the appraisal of property and the Authorities responsible for setting a Millage Rate to raise revenue. It is the mission of the Jasper County Tax Collector’s Office to collect assessed taxes and fees and to turn over all funds collected with comprehensive reports to the Board of Supervisors and to the Mississippi Department of Revenue.
The Tax Assessor/Collector’s office works under the rules and guidelines of the Mississippi Department of Revenue. The Assessor/Collector serves the combined offices located in both Paulding and Bay Springs, and is elected every four years by the citizens of Jasper County.
Please feel free to contact the Tax Assessor’s office if we can help in any way.
