Understanding Property Taxes and Values


It’s tax season, a good time for a refresher on Minnesota’s often misunderstood property tax system. The MN Department of Revenue offers a couple of good fact sheets on its Website:

Wisconsin also has a variety of resources on its Property Tax site.

Also, check out our Realist FAQ’s, particularly pages 3 and 4 for information on assessment year and last market sale.

Remember you can click the PID number on most Realist tax reports (accessed by clicking the PID number or TX icon on Matrix reports) to open the tax record for that property on the County website. Counties usually publish updated taxes and property values on their own websites before they send them to publishers such as Realist.

Realist starts receiving tax data from MN and WI counties anytime after April. We will keep you posted as updates are available.
