Tulsa County Assessor's Office

John A. Wright

Tulsa County Assessor
Tulsa County Court House
218 W. 6th St., 5th Floor
Tulsa, OK 74119-1004

Purpose of the County Assessor:
By Title 68 Section 2815 of the Ad Valorem Tax code, "The County Assessor shall take an oath that s/he will assess all property as provided by law." To ensure that fair and equal assessments are achieved, this office has field appraisers who continually work to update property records. Tulsa County's appraisal system is based on modern, sound and nationally accepted appraisal principles and methods.

The County Assessor's only function is assessment of property. The Assessor's office does not set your tax rate or collect taxes. Tax rates are set by the County Excise Board depending on funding needed for units of government and schools, as allowed by Oklahoma law, and to pay for bonds voted by voters for capital improvements such as utilities, education, libraries and school buildings. The County Treasurer's office is responsible for the collection of all tax monies.
