*IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING PROPERTY ASSESSMENTS*


May 8, 2020

Our top priority is the safety of the public and our staff as we adjust to the effect COVID-19 is having on our annual re-assessment work. 

This year, the Assessor staff will only do physical on-site exterior reviews of properties deemed necessary as we do our re-assessment.  The Assessor staff will be identified with their vest and badge. We will only do exterior photos/review and will leave a door tag if the property owner is not present. It is recommended to the property owner, if we do leave a door tag, to call the office to verify any other data pertinent on your property.

If you have questions, please feel free to call us at the number listed below.

Sherburne County Assessor’s Office    (763) 765-4900 

******************************************************************************

In Minnesota, property taxes provide most of the funding for local government services. Each property’s share of taxes is determined according to its value, classification (use), and the property tax levies.

Responsibilities

The Sherburne County Assessor’s Department is responsible for estimating property values and setting property classification for tax purposes. Each spring, a Notice of Valuation and Classification is sent to every property owner in Sherburne County. We address the resulting property valuation and classification concerns with property owners in person, by phone, and by letter. 

Appeals

Appeals are addressed at the Local Boards of Appeal and Equalization and at the County Board of Appeal and Equalization.

Our Mission

To administer the statutes of the State of Minnesota which pertain to Real and Personal Property Assessment to the best of our ability, and in a manner which shows neither partiality nor prejudice towards any property owner, class of property or taxing jurisdiction.
