Assessor is required to review damage and conduct reassessment for calculating relief
The Assessor’s Office is required to review all properties damaged to determine the amount of structural damage and estimate a reassessed value that will be used to calculate a new tax amount.
What you need to do
If your property sustained structural damage, please go online to the City Assessor website at www.minneapolismn.gov/assessor to complete the Disaster Reassessment Intake Form. You may attach up to 10 photos or other supporting documents with the form.
If you don’t have internet access, call 612-673-5959 and a staff member will contact you to collect more information.
If you have questions, please call 612-673-5959 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your property identification number, address, phone number and question(s).
Once the assessor determines the percentage of damage and reassessed value, you will be contacted with next steps in the process. For properties that sustained 50 percent or more damage and qualify for an abatement/credit, an application is required. The assessor will provide the application.
Assistance requested for outreach to all damaged properties
