Local Board of Appeal & Equalization

Property owners receive a Notice of Valuation and Classification for taxes payable in the year 2023. This is to notify you of both the market value and classification of your property for which your 2023 property tax will be based on. 

If you feel the property information is not correct or disagree with the market value and/or classification, please contact the County Assessor’s office first at 507-437-9440 to discuss your questions and concerns. Often times your concerns can be resolved at this level and no further appeal is necessary.

Please read your notice carefully for all of your appeal options.
