Plumas County Assessor
Plan to Mitigate the Spread of COVID-19
As a precautionary measure to help protect the community and staff from the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Assessor’s office will remain open to provide essential services, but will limit access to meet “social distancing guidelines.” As a result, In-person services are limited through the remainder of the locally declared emergency, or earlier with consultation of Plumas County Health Officials.
Our services can be accessed by using our website at plumascounty.us, click on County Departments, then, click on Assessor.
We can be contacted by phone at (530) 283-6380.
We may also be contacted by email us here
We can be contacted by U.S. Mail at Plumas County Assessor’s Office 1 Crescent Street, Quincy, Ca. 95971
Hand deliveries can be deposited into the drop box sited adjacent to the Building and Planning Depts. entrance.
In person meetings will be scheduled only if adequate “social distancing guidelines” can be met.
Thank you for your understanding during these very challenging times.
