Sample Property Tax Report for a Dakota County, MN property

In State of Minnesota counties or cities are responsible for property tax administration and the Department of Revenue only provides assistance and oversight. The process of calculating, imposing, and collecting Minnesota property taxes for a year actually spans two full calendar years. The two-year cycle begins with the January 2 statutory assessment date and extends all the way through the next calendar year until the property taxes have been paid.

Market Value

Market value is the amount for which a property would sell in a competitive and open market, presuming that both buyer and seller are knowledgeable about the sale, allow sufficient time for it, and are not affected by undue pressures (e.g. foreclosures and bankruptcy).

Land value $71,854
Building value + $260,852
Market value = $332,706
Assessed Value

Each property's share of taxes is determined according to its value, use, and the property tax levies. Assessors are responsible for estimating property values and setting classification for tax purposes. Assessment ratio is currently set to 100% throughout Dakota County.

Assessed value = $332,706
Exemptions & Taxable Value

Taxable value represents the assessed value less any tax exemptions that apply. Dakota County provides several exemptions,homesteads and credits that may lower the property's tax bill.

We have no information about whether any exemptions currently apply to this property. Therefore, the taxable value will be equal to the assessed value.

Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value with the corresponding tax rates and class code rates applicable to it.
Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays including exemptions and special assessments.
Base tax is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay.
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs or to non ad-valorem taxes levied as special taxes.

Tax capacity ( < 500000 ) $332,706 * 1.0000% = $3,327 * 100.7310% = $3,351.38
Tax capacity ( > 500000 ) $0 * 1.2500% = $0 * 100.7310% = $0.00
