Welcome!

Welcome to the Morgan County Assessor’s Office website.

My staff and I appreciate this opportunity to serve you, and would like to welcome you to our website. We are diligently working to make this office more efficient and to provide you, the citizens of Morgan County with a variety of accessible services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. From various tax filing forms, guides for filing those forms, filing dates and much more. We will continue to improve our website and provide you with the most up-to-date information, so that we can better serve your needs and interest.

The duty of the County Assessor under the West Virginia Constitution is to determine the value of real and personal property for the purpose of taxation. The role of the Assessor in the property taxation process is frequently misunderstood. It is often said that the Assessor increased the taxes, but in reality the Assessor’s only role is to fairly determine the true and actual appraised (fair market) value of real and personal property and to place in the proper tax class.

Our goal is to serve you, the taxpayers of Morgan County with honesty, integrity and professionalism. Please call the office @ (304) 258-8570 with any questions, problems or concerns you may have and either my staff or I will be more than happy to assist you in a timely manner.

Ronald G. McIntire, Morgan County Assessor
