From Joseph R. "Rocky" Romano - Assessor

I would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the citizens of Harrison County for allowing me to be your Assessor for another four years. I could not do what I do so successfully without your support. I have a lot of new and improved ideas coming in the near future and I’m extremely excited to bring them to fruition in Harrison County. I would also like to thank my hardworking staff for everything they do on a daily basis.

My staff and I strive for 100% taxpayer satisfaction. Our goal has always been to make the Harrison County Assessor's Office a pleasant place to do business. I hope to have courteous, friendly employees. We strive to treat everyone fairly and to demonstrate patience and a positive attitude in solving problems or addressing complaints. My number one priority is to assist you. If you have any questions or comments, I am available to talk or meet with you personally.

Classification and Unrecorded Land Contracts

If a taxpayer does not provide our office with a copy of an Unrecorded Land Contract they will not be eligible for the Class II - Owner Occupied status. The burden of proof for classification falls on the property owner. The Harrison County Assessors office has no record of unrecorded land contracts unless the taxpayer provides this proof. Therefore, we are not in error classifying these properties as Class III or IV.

Our office will no longer exonerate properties that were acquired via an unrecorded land contract that was not provided to our office by the taxpayer. The County Commission can only approve exonerations due to a clerical error. Therefore, exonerations will no longer be submitted for this reason. We will correct classification on only the current and future years at the time that proper documentation is provided by the taxpayer.
