Assessing Staff to View Properties in "Quintile" Area

The assessor values all property in the city for property taxation purposes. State law requires the assessor to physically inspect all properties every five years. To accomplish this, the assessor’s office views approximately one-fifth of the existing parcels each year. The area designated for review is commonly referred to as the "quintile". The location of the "quintile" this year is identified on the map to the left.

Appraisers from the assessor’s office are working in this area during 2020. These reviews will help determine the January 2, 2021 estimated/taxable market values for property taxes payable in 2022.

Home Visits

When appraisers visit homes they verify the accuracy of information used to determine market values for properties. This includes a home’s:

  • Age
  • Amenities
  • Condition
  • Size
  • Style
  • Etc.

By inspecting both the interior and exterior of a home, appraisers can do their best job of making a thorough and equitable appraisal of each property. City appraisers carry picture identification cards and drive marked City of Anoka vehicles for easy identification. If you have any questions regarding this year’s quintile, please call the assessor’s office at 763-576-2730.
