Is the County just increasing values to get more tax revenue?

No. The constitutional responsibility of assessing and valuing property falls to the County Assessor. The Assessor is not a taxing authority and cannot levy taxes. The Assessor reports the net assessed valuation to each of the 75 plus taxing jurisdictions within the county. The individual taxing jurisdictions then, based on their individual budgetary decisions, will set tax rates which will then be used to calculate the property tax bill.
