Assessing

The City of Corcoran contracts with Hennepin County to provide assessing services, including market value estimates and property classification in Corcoran. Minnesota Statutes requires the values set by the assessor represent 100 percent of market value. The assessor must provide uniform property values to ensure the tax burden is distributed fairly and equally.

Responsibilities

  • Update information in the property database -- Property Information.
  • Maintain homestead status and process -- Apply Online or by mail.
  • Inspect and review all existing properties in the city at least once every five years.
  • Inspect and review properties with permits issued in current year and partial assessments from prior years.
  • Provide value and ownership information to the public.
  • Calculate property values.
  •  Send notices listing current property value to all property owners each March. During that time, assessor staff reviews concerns of property owners who wish to contest the value set by the Assessing Department. If the issue cannot be resolved, owners may contest the value to the Board of Appeal and Equalization.

For more information about market value or property taxes, visit the websites below. The Hennepin County website provides property tax and assessment information for all properties in the county.

Forms and instructions are available from the State of Minnesota.
