In Minnesota, property taxes provide most of the funding for local government services. Each property’s share of taxes is determined according to its value, classification (use), and the property tax levies.

Chisago County assessors are responsible for estimating property values and setting property classification for tax purposes. Our department sends the property valuation (Value Notice) each spring to every property owner in Chisago County. We administer a variety of property tax credit programs including Homestead, Green Acres, and Disaster Tax Credit. We address property valuation concerns and appeals and provide assessment and value information to the County Board, local boards of review, and to the public.
