Assessment

The Property and Taxation Services Department employs eleven licensed professional assessors who are responsible for estimating the market value and determining the classification of approximately 58,000 parcels located in Scott County for property tax purposes.

Valuations
Valuations must meet the standards established by Minnesota Statutes and the Minnesota Department of Revenue. This department appraises all property at actual market value, determines the current classification/use of the property, informs property owners of their estimated value, conducts public meetings to discuss those values, applies appropriate classification rates, and compiles taxable values for each taxing authority.
