Welcome to the Norman County Assessors Department
The County Assessor’s Office is responsible for estimating the market value and determining the legislative classification of all parcels in Norman County for property tax purposes. We maintain assessment records and administer special property tax programs.
The law specifically requires that assessors view each parcel of real estate to appraise its market value. Property values change continuously with changing economic conditions. In addition to market changes, numerous physical changes affect the value of land and buildings. All factors are considered in estimating the value of property.
The assessor also determines the classification or use of each parcel. For instance, property may be residential homestead(owner-occupied), residential non-homestead, agricultural, or commercial. Each classification is taxed at a different percentage of market value. These percentages are set by the state legislature.
The Assessor Office follows Minnesota State Statutes and standards established by the Minnesota Department of Revenue to provide a fair and equitable assessment throughout the county.
