Pennington County Assessor's Office

The County Assessor's Office is responsible for estimating the market value and determining the legislative classification of all property in Pennington County for real estate tax purposes. Valuations must meet the standards established by Minnesota Statutes and the Minnesota Department of Revenue.


The estimated market value and classification are based on the condition and use of the property as of January 2nd of each year. Notices of values and classes are mailed to the property owners in the spring of the year. If they disagree with the value or classification or have a question on the notice they received they should contact this office. If they feel they need to appeal the value or class further, there is information on the Notice as to the process. After the appeal process, the values and classifications are set and used for property tax for the following year.

Properties which are occupied as a primary residence by the owner or a qualified relative of the owner may qualify for homestead. Occupants should contact the County Assessor's Office and fill out a homestead application or a relative homestead application. Homestead is a property tax reduction intended to keep taxes lower on owner/qualified relative occupied homes.
