The Assessor's Office requests the following documentation if you are using Teton County to collect fees and/or mills:
- Report the specific amount to be applied to each parcel. If you are collecting for more than 1 (example: water and meters) then the specific amount for each. The County Assessor will not determine this value for you, but instead will use your figures to balance.
- Total dollar amount to balance.
- List of properties to collect on. This list needs to include the Assessors account number (ex: R0000123) Please do not use the PIDN number (22-41-17…) or the tax ID (01-000123).
- Please notify, in writing, as soon as possible, if your special district will not require Teton County to be the collection agent for the current tax year.

- A copy of your current budget.
