Minnesota Revenue Property Tax Fact Sheets
|The Assessor's Office directs, plans, and supervises the appraisal and recording of all property assessments in Renville County as prescribed by Minnesota Statutes and the directives of the Commissioner of Revenue in order to provide an equitable and efficient system of property appraisal for tax purposes.
The law specifically requires that every fifth year an appraiser must inspect all properties and record property characteristics that would affect the market value (such as construction quality, condition, age, size, etc.) in order to determine an opinion of market value on each particular property
An assessment notice is mailed in the spring of each year to the property owner. This form will indicate the property's estimated market value from January 2 of the current year, along with the estimated market value from January 2 of the previous year, and the property's appropriate classification (i.e., residential, commercial, agricultural). It will also give you information for appealing the estimated market value or classification if you disagree with your market value or feel an error has been made on your property's valuation. The market value indicated on this notice will be used to calculate the taxes payable in the following year.
