The property tax is an ad valorem tax, that is, a tax based upon value. It's the
primary means by which local government pays for services it provides, such as
police and fire protection, schools, roads, parks, courts, etc. It involves two
separate functions, the assessment function and the budget function. After
these functions are completed, the county auditor calculates the appropriate mill
rate and that rate is applied to each taxable property to determine the property
The assessor is responsible for discovering, listing and valuing all taxable
property. All real property is subject to taxation, unless expressly exempted by
law. All property is valued according to its value on February 1st of each year.
All real property is valued at True and Full Value. For residential and
commercial property, this equals market value. For agricultural value, it equals
its productivity value as defined by North Dakota statute.
The assessor must notify property owners when a True and Full Value
increases 10% or more and by $3,000 or more. In April of each year, the
assessor's assessments are reviewed by the city or township boards of
equalization. Within the first ten (10) days of June, the county reviews the
assessments of cities and townships. During August of each year, the State
Board of Equalization reviews the assessments as finalized by various counties.
The assessor, by the fair and accurate valuation of property, ensures that
everyone shares equitably in the total burden of property taxation.
