  • About This Answer

    To calculate the exact amount of property tax you will owe requires your property's assessed value and the property tax rates based on your property's address. Please note that we can only estimate your property tax based on median property taxes in your area. There are typically multiple rates in a given area, because your state, county, local schools and emergency responders each receive funding partly through these taxes. In our calculator, we take your home value and multiply that by your county's effective property tax rate. This is equal to the median property tax paid as a percentage of the median home value in your county.

Paying Your Anoka County Property Taxes

Your tax due date in Anoka County can vary depending on what type of property you’re paying taxes on each year. But in most cases, your property tax payments will be due on May 15 and October 15 each year. These dates apply to real estate property, residential homestead and personal property built on leased government land.

Manufactured homes and agricultural homestead are exceptions to these dates with tax payments due on May 15 and November 15 of each year. In cases where the due date falls on a weekend, taxes will be due the next business day.

You’ll be subject to increasing penalties if you’re late on one or both of your tax installments. For residential homesteads, past-due tax payments face an 8% penalty on December 1 or a 10% penalty if still outstanding by January 2. Costs are even higher for non-homestead properties, with penalties increasing from 12% to 14% for any outstanding balances on January 2.

Anoka County taxpayers have a few options for taking care of any necessary tax payments owed. Those who prefer to pay in person have the option to pay at the Anoka County Government Center’s Public Service Counter.

How Your Anoka County Property Tax Works

There are two different approaches to calculating property taxes in Anoka County. The state levies taxes on market value and on net tax capacity. For property taxes based on market value, property taxes will be based directly on your home’s market value. The resulting tax bill will combine with your net tax capacity-based taxes to form your net tax bill.

For net tax capacity, the tax calculation is first based on your home’s market value minus any possible market value exclusions. The most common exclusion that could affect your taxes is the Homestead Market Value Exclusion. The Homestead Market Exclusion is 40% of your home’s market value for homestead properties with a value of up to $76,000. For values beyond $76,000 up to a cap of $413,800, the exclusion is $30,400 with 9% of the home’s value above $76,000 subtracted.

This amount is then multiplied by your property’s class rate to determine final net tax capacity. Class rate is a percentage of either 1% or 1.25% depending on your home’s value. For example, residential homesteads are subject to a class rate of 1% on the first $500,000 of the home’s value and a rate of 1.25% on any remaining value over $500,000.

There are a few different situations that can affect your property tax bill each year. First, changes in spending that your city, Anoka County or your local school district makes can certainly impact the annual amount you’ll pay in a given year. You might find that your property taxes could increase if a voter referendum approves a new tax in the area as well.

Going beyond spending decisions, changes in tax legislation or the way properties are classified can also alter your tax payments. Even if tax laws remain unchanged, changes in your property’s market value or the market values in your area can affect your Anoka County property tax payments.

Each January, the Assessor will both classify and value your property. This assessment is based on market values through the last October and September. After this step, each jurisdiction within Anoka County will use assessments to set local tax rates. Of course, the Minnesota Department of Revenue also oversees every step in the process.

What goes into determining market value? Assessments look at the appropriate price for your home in an open market under typical market conditions and circumstances to determine market value. Local jurisdictions only begin budgeting once the assessment process is complete. Finally, budgeting leads into the process of setting local tax rates within Anoka County.

Rank County Property Tax Rate School Rating Crimes Per 100k People

Methodology

Our study aims to find the places in the United States where people are getting the most for their property tax dollars. To do this we looked at school rankings, crime rates and property taxes for every county.

As a way to measure the quality of schools, we calculated the average math and reading/language arts proficiencies for all the school districts in the country. Within each state, these schools were then ranked between 1 and 10 (with 10 being the best) based on those average scores.

For each county, we calculated the violent and property crimes per 100,000 residents.

Using the school and crime numbers, we calculated a community score. This is the ratio of the school rank to the combined crime rate per 100,000 residents.

We used the number of households, median home value and average property tax rate to calculate a per capita property tax collected for each county.

Finally, we calculated a tax value by creating a ratio of the community score to the per capita property tax paid. This shows us the counties in the country where people are getting the most bang for their buck, or where their property tax dollars are going the furthest.
