Understanding Your Property Assessment

In Minnesota, property taxes provide most of the funding for local government services. The County of Anoka collects the taxes and distributes the money among the County, cities, townships, school district and special districts such as the Metropolitan Council, Metropolitan Transit and the Metropolitan Mosquito Control District.

Each property’s share of taxes is determined according to its value, use, and the property tax levies. Assessors are responsible for estimating property values and setting classification for tax purposes.
