The above timeline is part of the Assessor’s Office annual cycle and includes important dates regarding property valuation and classification and the appeal process:

October 1, 2018 Through September 30, 2019

This is the Sales Study period. The Assessor’s Office tracks all real estate sales in Carver County and analyzes market trends as part of determining property valuations. For the 2020 valuation for taxes payable in 2021, Assessors follow the market in 2019 and make adjustments as the market indicates. The Department of Revenue will compare sales from October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019 to the Assessors’ estimated market value as of January 2, 2020, to determine whether assessments are equitable. 

January 2, 2020

All properties will be valued as of January 2 each year for taxes payable the following year. The January 2, 2020 valuation of property will be used in calculating property taxes for 2021. This lag in time is designed to allow time for taxpayers to appeal their property’s valuation and classification.

March 2020

Tax Statement for Taxes payable 2020 are mailed to taxpayers, along with the Notices of Valuation and Classification for 2020 for taxes payable in 2021. This is the beginning for the taxpayer’s appeal process. Taxpayers may contact the Assessor for their area with questions and concerns regarding their 2020 valuation or classification for taxes payable in 2021. If you have further questions please reach out to the Assessor by calling the listed number on the bottom of your 2020 value notice.    

April-May 2020

This is the beginning of the three part formal appeal process. During this time period, Local Boards of Appeal and Equalization for 2020 Valuation and Classification meet. The meeting dates are listed on the Notices of Valuation. If taxpayers have not been able to resolve any questions regarding the classification or valuation of property with the county assessor, they may attend this meeting. The date of this meeting is listed on your valuation notice. Alternatively, you may also send a designated representative to the meeting, or send a letter prior to the meeting. Please note that you cannot appear at the Carver County Board meeting unless you have first attended the Local Board of Appeal meeting.  If you feel your value or classification are not accurate please call the Carver County Assessor's Office at 952-361-1960.
