Important Information Regarding Property Assessments
This may affect your 2020 property taxes.
The Local Board of Appeal and Equalization for Duluth will meet on May 15, 2019, at 4:30PM, in City Council Chambers on the 3rd floor of City Hall. The purpose of this meeting is to determine whether property in the jurisdiction has been properly valued and classified by the assessor. If you believe the value or classification of your property is incorrect, please contact your assessor’s office at 218-726-2304 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. Generally, you must appeal to the local board before appealing to the county board of appeal and equalization.
