Chanhassen contracts with the Carver County Assessors office to determine the estimated market value of each property in the city. If a property owner disagrees with the estimated market value and/or classification, it may be appealed by participating in the "Open Book Process".
Open Book Process
Prior to appealing to the county board, property owners must first present their appeal to the city. Chanhassen participates in the Open Book Process at the Carver County Assessor's Office in Chaska. Property owners may make their appeal April 21-25, 2014 any time between 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
If a property owner is not satisfied with the outcome of the Open Book Process, the Carver County Board of Appeal and Equalization will hear appeals from property owners who disagree with the city's assessed value of their property. The five-member Board is made up of the Carver County Board of Commissioners. The meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 16, 2014 at 5:00 pm.
