BRAINERD — Crow Wing County Land Services will begin the state-mandated “quintile” process of physically viewing 20% of the parcels within the county for property valuations effective in 2023.

State statute requires each county to review properties annually to verify the accuracy and completeness of assessment records used to determine property taxes. This year, property assessors will view about 8,000 parcels countywide.

“Property owners will see assessors verifying information about their property including size, quality, homestead status and conditions of improvements,” stated Sandra Brueland, property assessor supervisor, in a news release.

Assessors will also be able to answer property owners’ questions about the property tax process. Assessors will always display their county identification badges, and vehicles will display county markers.

Business cards will be left with customers if no one is home during the visit, and some customers may receive a follow-up letter requesting an interior review if necessary.

“We are committed to fairly and accurately valuing property for tax purposes. Annual physical reviews of property is an essential tool in maintaining accurate, uniform and consistent property valuations,” Brueland said in the news release.

Information from the 2022 review will be reflected in the 2023 property tax assessment. Property valuations are primarily determined by analyzing sales information on similar properties throughout the county. Official notice of the 2023 assessment will be mailed to property owners beginning in March of next year.

Property owners may contact the office at landservices@crowwing.us or 218-824-1010 with any questions they may have about the valuation and classification process.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
