Marsha M. Faux, CFA, ASA

Polk County Property Appraiser
255 N. Wilson Ave.
Bartow, FL 33830

Note from Marsha:

I am very excited about the opportunity to serve the citizens of Polk County as Property Appraiser. My first priority is to provide our county with accurate and equitable assessments. Additionally, I am committed to promoting public awareness of the assessment process. I feel this can be accomplished through educational outreach, data distribution, and on-line resources. We will continue the development and maintenance of information technology, which will make assessment information easy to obtain, while increasing the efficiency of the office.

We are working hard to gain your confidence and to provide you with accurate information, excellent customer service, and the efficient use of public funds.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
