Important Information Regarding 2020 Board of Appeals and  Property Assessments

This may affect your 2021 property taxes.

The Board of Appeal and Equalization for the City of Becker will meet at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 9, 2020 via teleconferencing due to the health pandemic emergency declared by the City of Becker on March 24, 2020.   The public may listen to the meeting by calling 1-717-275-8940 Access Code 8320766# (LONG DISTANCE CHARGES APPLY.)  The purpose of this meeting is to determine whether property in the jurisdiction has been properly valued and classified by the assessor. 

If you believe the value or classification of your property is incorrect, please contact your assessor’s office to discuss your concerns. If you disagree with the valuation or classification after discussing it with your assessor, you must submit your appeal in writing to the Sherburne County Assessor’s office and City of Becker by email at assessor@co.sherburne.mn.us and jblesi@ci.becker.mn.us or by mail to Sherburne County Government Center, Attn: Assessor, 13880 Business Center Drive NW Ste 100, Elk River MN 55330 and City of Becker, PO Box 250, Becker MN 55308 rather than appearing in person at the City of Becker Board of Appeals and Equalization. The board will review your assessments and may make corrections as needed. Generally, you must appeal to the local board before appealing to the county board of appeal and equalization.

Important Information from the Sherburne County Assessor’s Office

March 24, 2020

Due to concerns over the health and safety of property owners and the employees of Sherburne County, the Assessor’s office is not having direct face-to-face contact with property owners.  

We will not conduct physical inspections, both interior and exterior, of any properties until further notice.

The Sherburne County Assessor’s office will continue to assist property owners with their valuations and classification of their properties.  We encourage property owners that have a concern to reach out to our office directly to resolve any issues.

The appraisers will use tools such as GIS technology, aerial photography and phone interviews with the property owners to resolve all appeals. We expect to continue to address all concerns to fullest and we are doing this out of concern of our property owners.

On our webpage, you will find under Appeals the calendar of the various meetings for appeal that your township or city may be holding.  These meetings are also posted on your valuation notice.

If a township or city plans to change their meeting format, that township or city will post this change for the public.

You can reach our office by calling 763-765-4900 or email assessor@co.sherburne.mn.us
