Assessor

The assessor establishes the estimated market value for property tax purposes, classifies property according to use, and oversees the appeal process. 

New construction is viewed the year the structures are built. Existing properties are viewed at least once every five years as required by Minnesota Law. This ensures that property records are accurate and valuations have been estimated fairly. 

The estimated market value must be in compliance with the standards established by the Minnesota Department of Revenue and Minnesota Statutes.
