Notice of Local Board of Appeal and Equalization

Important Information Regarding Property Assessments

This may affect your 2022 property taxes

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that the Board of Appeal and Equalization for the City of La Crescent in Houston and Winona County, Minnesota, will meet at the La Crescent City Hall, 315 Main Street, La Crescent, Minnesota, at 5:30 o’clock P.M., on Monday, the 19th day of April, 2021.

The purpose of this meeting is to determine whether taxable property in the jurisdiction has been properly valued and classified by the assessor, and to determine whether corrections need to be made.

Please be advised that pursuant to Minn. Stat. Section 13D.021 members of the City Council may attend the meeting electronically, either by telephone or zoom.

Further, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor’s Executive Order declaring a Peacetime Emergency, and the need to limit the numbers of individuals gathered in one place while also practicing social distancing, we are recommending that citizens not attend this meeting in person.

Prior to April 19, 2021, we would suggest the following:

  1. Contact the Houston County Assessor’s office by phone at (507) 725-5801, or by e-mail at Onstad@co.houston.mn.us.

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 may appear before the local board of appeal and equalization.  The board will review your assessments and may make corrections as needed.  You must appeal to the local board of appeal and equalization before appealing to the county board of appeal and equalization.

Given under my hand this 2nd day of April 2021.
