Assessment Office
Assessment
The Assessor’s Office is responsible for evaluating the value of real estate throughout Lackawanna County. We recently created a database to display Lackawanna County’s assessment information online. Exciting changes are happening at the Office of the Assessor with technology leading the way. New aerial photography and mapping systems will help accurately identify your property. The Office is dedicated to bringing fairness to the Lackawanna County tax system as well as updating systems in order to serve the public with the most up-to-date information by having all information available via our website. 

On May 18, 2022, Lackawanna County contracted with Tyler Technologies, Inc., Appraisal Services, to conduct a County-wide Reassessment project to correct unfair property assessments. When Lackawanna County last completed a property assessment in 1968, the national cost of a gallon of gas was $0.34, a dozen eggs cost $0.53, and a hamburger at McDonald’s cost $0.18.   With such an out-of-date system, it is possible for property owners with similar houses to pay different amounts of property tax. 
By conducting a reassessment, Lackawanna County is expecting to change from an out-of-date, unequal assessment system to a system that is based on current, accurate property values.
