About the St. Cloud City Assessor's Office
The St. Cloud City Assessor’s Office is a division of the city Finance Department. The Assessor’s primary function is to annually establish the market value and classification of all properties within the city.

Functions
The office staff physically inspects property to ensure that property information is accurate and up to date. The staff continually analyzes cost, income, and sales data and applies that analysis to similar properties to ensure that all properties are valued fairly.

Requesting Property Information
Property information from the assessor's office is public information and is available through a GIS Map application at this Search Property Information Link.
If property owners have questions or comments about property value, classification, or taxes, contact the Assessor’s Office at (320) 255-7203.

Distribution of Taxes
In Minnesota, property taxes provide most of the funding for local government services. The county auditor / treasurer collects the taxes and distributes the money between the county, city, township, school district, and special districts such as the Housing and Redevelopment Authority, and Metropolitan Transit Commission.

Estimating Property Values
The tax on each property is determined according to its value, property use, and the property tax levies. Assessors are responsible for estimating property values and setting property use classifications for tax purposes.
