Derrick Wharff Assessor and Tax Collector

Yamhill County Assessor Derrick Wharff took office in 2017.

Living in the Willamette Valley my entire life, I understand the unique aspects of Yamhill County. Our County has the lush soils at the heart of the Willamette Valley and the premiere forestland of the coastal range. Agri-business and agri-tourism have created new economic opportunities, while our long established businesses continue to grow and thrive.

Oregon’s Property Tax system is very complex. I enjoy sharing my expertise with citizens who are looking to be better informed and may have questions or concerns regarding their assessed property value and taxes.
