Assessor

The Washington County Assessor’s Office is responsible for establishing the market value and determining classification (use) of property located within Washington County. The Assessor’s Office also maintains the county’s property database and is the primary source of property information for interdepartmental and community use.

Service of Property Tax Petitions

In light of the Governor's continuing emerging executive orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the limited availability of staffing of County public-facing services, Washington County is again permitting the alternative services of petitions under Minn. Stat. Section 278.01 for the objection to real property taxes due during the year 2021 ("tax petitions"). Please reference the following link to the County Policy and Acknowledgement and Waiver of Personal Service Form.
