The appraisal staff has begun updating photos in the City of Albert Lea and Glenville quintile areas for the 2021 assessment. These areas are highlighted on the map below. In an effort to continue social distancing and have minimal face to face contact with the public, we will NOT be knocking on doors or leaving door hangers. Appraisers will be wearing identification badges.

Freeborn County is set up under a "true county assessor" system which means all property assessments are conducted by the County. The County Assessor’s Office is responsible for the valuation and classification of all property within the county for property tax purposes as provided by state law and regulation.
For general information on property taxes, check out the fact sheets provided by the Minnesota Department of Revenue.
