Property owners in Mower County could see larger-than-normal increases in the value of their property

As residents of Mower County receive their property tax valuation notices now or in the very near future, some property owners may see larger-than-normal increases. As with all the counties in the Southeastern region, certain properties will see increases that exceed 20%.  KAUS News spoke with Joy Kanne, Mower County Assessor who talked about the main reasons for the increases..


Kanne went on to state that the larger-than-normal increases in property values are not confined to southeastern Minnesota alone…

Kanne stated that property owners in the county who have any questions about the value of their property or how that value is determined to contact her office…

You can call the Mower County Assessor’s Office with any value or classification concerns at (507) 437-9440.  The 2022 assessed values were determined based on the sales occurring between October 1st, 2020 to September 30th of 2021. The sales within that time frame are time-trended by the Minnesota Department of Revenue to keep up with market activity.   Most counties that Mower County uses to benchmark its property values report median residential property value increases near or exceeding 20%, including Freeborn, Steele, Dodge and Olmsted Counties all at 20%, Waseca County at 18% and Fillmore County at 16%.
