2014 Value Notices for Taxes Payable in 2015

2014 Value Notices for Taxes Payable in 2015 were mailed along with the 2014 Property Tax Statements.

Your 2014 Value for Taxes Payable in 2015 is established as of January 2, 2014 (the Assessment Date).  The Estimated Market Value of your property is the value for which your property would likely sell on the open market.  In determining the value, the Assessor considers the most current arm's length sales of similar properties, current market conditions, and trends that may increase or decrease the value of your property.  (For more information, please read How is My Estimated Market Value Established?)

Please read your Value Notice thoroughly.  If you feel your valuation and property classification are correct, it is not necessary to contact the Assessor's Office.

If you do have additional questions or concerns about your value or classification, contact us at or call 651-266-2131.  You may also attend an Open Book Meeting (explained below).

Open Book Meetings Have Concluded - Additional Appeal Options Available

Open Book meetings have concluded.  If you still have questions or concerns about the valuation or classification of your property, please call 651-266-2131 to discuss your concerns over the phone with an appraiser.  Many times your concerns can be resolved at this level. 

  • If you have discussed your concerns with an appraiser and we feel a review is warranted, we will make an appointment with you to view the interior of your property and confirm the property data characteristics in our database.
  • The appraiser will review comparable market sales in your area and compare them to your property.
  • No adjustments to the estimated market value will be made without an interior inspection.

If you are still not satisfied, you have the following appeal options:

County Board of Appeal and Equalization - You may request a formal review by the County Assessor by completing a County Board of Appeal and Equalization form (Form 1679). Forms can be obtained from the Assessor’s Office. Call 651-266-2131 to speak with an appraiser to determine if one is necessary.

  •    Appeal forms must be postmarked by May 6, 2014.
