We are happy to announce that preliminary 2016 tax amounts and preliminary 2015 market values are now available in Realist and on Matrix tax reports (linked from the PID number in Matrix displays) for the following Minnesota counties: Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington
These preliminary figures are from the counties’ Proposed Tax Statements. Our Realist vendor still receives final tax and valuation amounts starting in April and publishes them as soon as they can process the files. But with preliminary amounts now available through NorthstarMLS, you have the most up-to-date information now without having to go to the County websites.

Please keep these important factors in mind when using the preliminary figures:

  • Though preliminary figures often go through as final, they are subject to change.
  • Because proposed tax statements do not include special assessments, we do not have preliminary assessments data. You still need to wait for the final tax data to be available before you can know this year’s special assessments.
  • When entering a new listing into NorthstarMLS, the preliminary tax amount will not auto-populate. We are looking into making it possible. In the meantime, you may manually enter the preliminary tax amount in the listing. However, when the final tax figures are available, please check to see if it changed and needs to be corrected.

We hope to add preliminary taxes and valuations for more counties next year. If you have questions, contact our Help Desk at 651-251-5456 (1-877-251-5455) or help@northstarmls.com.
