Our appraisers will be starting their annual quintile in June 2023. This process involves physically inspecting all properties within the quintile area for that year. This also allows us to update our records to make them more accurate. State statute requires a reassessment of all property across the county every five years. Areas in Mower County being quintiled the summer of 2023 are as follows:
- Dexter Township
- Sargeant Township
- Lyle Township
- Nevada Township
- City of Mapleview
- City of Brownsdale
- Multiple areas from the City of Austin
You may see our appraisers out in these jurisdictions this summer inspecting properties. They can be identified by their reflective vests & travel in branded Mower County vehicles. Appraisers will attempt contact with the homeowner by knocking when they arrive but may leave an orange tag on the door if no one is home. They then update pictures & may verify the exterior measurements of structures on the property before moving on.
Please notify our office with any questions or concerns.Mower County is set up under a “true county assessor” system which means all property assessments are conducted by the County. The County has a team of licensed appraisers who value, classify, and report all 21,300 parcels of property on an annual basis. That information is then used by the County’s experienced taxation team to determine taxes paid by each property.
