Every piece of property is valued and classified as of January 2 each year. The Assessor's Office then sets the dates for the Board of Review for each township and city in the county. These are generally held in April and May. The purpose for the Boards of Review is to give people an opportunity to appeal their proposed valuation or classification. They must appeal to the local Board of Review first, and then, if not satisfied, they may appeal to the County Board of Equalization. The appeal may be in person or in writing.
We strongly recommend anyone with a question or problem concerning their valuation to contact our office at 651-385-3040 prior to the meeting to discuss the situation.
