Assessing

The Assessing Department is responsible for annually establishing the estimated market value and determining the property classification of each parcel of property located within the City of Orono for the purpose of property tax allocation. 

Minnesota statutes requires that the values set by the assessor represent 100 percent of market value. The assessor must provide uniform property values to ensure the tax burden is distributed fairly and equitably.
