Property value assessments to be mailed soon

Property value assessments to be mailed soon

Crow Wing County property owners will soon be receiving their annual notice of property valuation and classification.

Each notice lists the assessed value of the property along with the tax classification. These assessments are used to calculate property taxes payable in 2015.

Gary Griffin, land services supervisor for property valuation and classification, stated “it is very important property owners read and understand the notice because changes to a property’s assessment can impact property taxes payable the next year.”

Again this year property owners will see value notices and tax statements mailed together. By mailing the notices and statements together the county estimates to save $6,000 a year in postage and additional staff time. This will also enhance the understanding for customers on overall tax process. Griffin is encouraging taxpayers to contact the Crow Wing County Land Services Department with any questions they may have about their properties valuation or classification.

The office is located in Brainerd on the main floor of the Land Services Building, 322 Laurel St. The main phone number is 824-1010 and the email address is or visit the website at
