Notes From Diane

Welcome to the Douglas County Assessor/Register of Deeds website!


In the pursuit of fair and equitable values


The state of Nebraska requires the Assessor’s office to establish and maintain fair and equitable values for all real and personal property in Douglas County. Currently, we value more than 224,000 parcels of real property. Determining value involves several steps, such as actually inspecting property periodically each year. That’s the job of our appraisal staff, some of whom are pictured below. So, when you see them in your neighborhood, wearing their yellow vests and county ID card, and driving an Assessor Department vehicle, rest assured they are not there to raise your taxes, they are working diligently to fulfill our mission—to establish and maintain fair and equitable values in our community.
