Distribution of Taxes
In the state of Minnesota, property taxes provide most of the funding for local government services. The county auditor/treasurer collects the taxes and distributes the funds between the county, city, township, school district, and special districts such as the Housing and Redevelopment Authority, and Metropolitan Transit Commission.
Estimating Property Value
The tax on each property is determined according to its value, property use, and the property tax levies. Assessors are responsible for estimating property values and setting property use classifications for tax purposes. Property may be classified as residential homestead, residential non-homestead, apartment, agricultural, or commercial/industrial. Each classification is taxed at a different percentage of market value. These percentages are established by the Minnesota State Legislature. How does the assessor estimate the market value of my property? Find out more here.
