Reappraisal Areas for 2021 Assessment (Taxes Payable 2022)
Below is a map of the areas scheduled for reappraisal this year. Due to the distancing recommendations related to COVID-19, the appraiser will not be making a personal introduction and will be viewing your property from a St. Louis County vehicle. If the COVID-19 distancing recommendations are no longer in place when your property is visited, the appraiser will then be requesting permission to view your property.
Due to social distancing recommendations, some jurisdictions may have changed the format of their 2020 Local Board of Appeal and Equalization. Please refer to the 2020 LBAE Calendar to review any changes.
On March 26, 2020, the Minnesota Legislature passed a bill implementing statutory changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Among the changes is an extension of the deadline to file Minnesota Tax Court petitions.
The deadline to file petitions for property taxes payable in 2020 is May 30, 2020.
St. Louis County is currently accepting service of Tax Court petitions by email (preferred) or mail. Complete details may be found by clicking the link below.
Timely, Uniform, Fair
The St. Louis County Assessor's Department is responsible for the equalization of property assessments throughout St. Louis County, including the City of Duluth. It is the Assessor's responsibility to ensure each property is equally and uniformly assessed.
To do this, the Department estimates a property's market value and classifies it according to its use for property tax purposes.
By law, every parcel in the county must be viewed by an assessor at least once every five years. In addition, every year assessors visit any parcel with new construction, alterations or improvements.
