  • Adhering to Virginia statutes, local ordinances, and best practices of appraisal and assessment administration
  • Providing transparent, public access to information and processes
  • Employing a competent, well-trained, professional staff; and
  • Demanding the highest standard of ethical behavior of department employees.
