The Assessor’s Office has finalized preliminary market values and classifications for the 2021 assessment.Notices have been mailed to property owners and will be received by the end of March.Information regarding open book and local board of appeal and equalization meetings are provided on these notifications. The values and classifications are certified after the county board of appeal and equalization, the only way that a further appeal can take place after certification is through the Minnesota tax court.
In Minnesota, property taxes provide most of the funding for local government services. Wright County collects the taxes and distributes the money between the county, cities, townships, school districts and special districts. Each property’s share of taxes is determined according to its value, classification, tax capacity rate and the property tax levies. Assessors are responsible for estimating property values and determining property classification for tax purposes.
