Assessor Announces Dates for Local Boards of Appeal

A Message from the Wright County Assessor’s Office:

Wright County property owners recently received their annual Notice of Valuation and Classification for the 2023 Assessment, property taxes payable in 2024. This is the first of three notifications that property owners will receive regarding the 2024 property taxes, with the Truth in Taxation notice coming in November 2023 and the Property Tax Statement in March 2024. The purpose of the Valuation Notice is to notify property owners of their 2023 property valuation and classification for property taxes. Other information on the notice includes enrollment in state programs such as homestead, green acres and disabled vets as well as any new construction value included in the total valuation. Property owners are encouraged to review their notifications and contact the Assessor’s Office if they have questions or concerns, most of the time things can be resolved informally at this level.

For property owners who wish to formally appeal their value or classification, their appeal options depend on the district in which the property is located.

Open Book Districts:  Wright County has 13 districts who are utilizing the Open Book option of appeals for 2023. They include the cities of Buffalo, Clearwater, Cokato, Delano, Maple Lake, Monticello, Montrose, South Haven and Waverly and the townships of Chatham, Clearwater, Rockford and Silver Creek. Property owners in open book districts have the ability to informally appeal by contacting the Assessor’s Office all the way up through the beginning of June. The Assessor’s Office will be hosting an “open book” meeting from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 27 at the Wright County Government Center (3650 Braddock Ave. NE, Buffalo) in Conference Room 1103. Attendance at this meeting is not required, rather this is an opportunity for the Assessor’s Office to be available to property owners outside of normal business hours. If property owners are unsatisfied with their appeal at this level, they are welcome to sign up for the County Board of Appeal and Equalization which will be held on Monday, June 12, 2023 at the Wright County Government Center.

Local Board of Appeal and Equalization Meetings: The remaining 22 districts in Wright County utilize the traditional Local Board meeting option for appeals. This includes the cities of Albertville, Annandale, Dayton, Hanover, Howard Lake, Otsego, Rockford and St. Michael and the townships of Albion, Buffalo, Cokato, Corinna, Franklin, French Lake, Maple Lake, Marysville, Middleville, Monticello, Southside, Stockholm, Victor, Woodland. In these districts, property owners need to reach out to the Assessor’s Office prior to their scheduled meeting and/or attend the Local Board meeting printed on their notice in order to have their appeal heard. All Local Board meetings are scheduled for April (see below). In order to be able to appeal to the County Board in June, property owners in these districts must first appeal to their Local Board.

The County Board of Appeal and Equalization meeting will be held at 4 p.m. Monday, June 12 at the Wright County Government Center. Property owners wishing to have their appeal heard at this level must either own property in an open book district or needed to attend the local board meeting in April for the district in which their property resides. Appointments for the County Board of Appeal meeting must be made by Monday, June 5 by contacting the Assessor’s Office.

For more information on appealing property value and classification, property owners should visit the Department of Revenue website:  https://www.revenue.state.mn.us/appealing-property-value-and-classification

Property owners who have missed the deadlines to appeal locally or are unsatisfied with the results of their appeal are able to file in Tax Court. The deadline to file is Sunday, April 30 in the year the taxes are payable. More information can be found on their website: https://mn.gov/tax-court/
