Rice County Sets Property Tax Appeals Meetings


Rice County property owners recently received a Notice of Valuation and Classification for Taxes Payable for 2024. This form provides notification of the market value and classification of a property for assessment for 2023. The property taxes paid in 2024 will be based on that classification.

Listed on the notice are the dates and times of the local Board of Appeal and Equalization, and alternative meetings for 2023. If you believe that your valuation and classification are correct, it is not necessary to contact your assessor and/or attend any of the listed meetings.

If the property information is incorrect, if there is disagreement with the value/classification or if there are questions about the notice, contact the Assessor’s Office first at 507-332-6102 to discuss any questions or concerns.

All property owners are invited to attend the Open Book meeting in Faribault to have a one-on-one discussion with the assessor. Often issues can be resolved at this level. The assessor will advise of further appeal rights, if needed.

The County asks that everyone please read the notice carefully for all appeal options. Those who live in a jurisdiction with a Local Board of Appeal and Equalization meeting (Forest and Wells townships), must start with that Local board before advancing to the County Board of Appeal and Equalization.
