Update as of 6/1/2021
Our staff is currently working normal business hours. You should have recently received your 2021 tax statements along with your 2021 valuation notice for taxes payable in 2022. Be sure to review your valuation notice as this is the time to appeal the value as well as verify that any classification or homestead changes maybe be occurring. At the bottom of your notice your appeal schedule should be listed for your dates and times. This schedule can also be found here at 2021 appeals schedule. As of 4/1/2021 our doors will be open to the pubic. Please see the Freeborn County main page for information on this.
We will also continue to work on our 2022 assessment quintile plan for taxes payable in 2023. These areas are highlighted on the map below. We will be sending out postcards for these quintile areas. We will be knocking on doors or leaving door hangers. Appraisers will be wearing identification badges and be in a Freeborn county vehicle.
