The Wright County Assessor is charged with several administrative and statutory duties. The Assessor's primary duty and responsibility is to assess all real property, which includes residential, commercial, industrial, multi-residential and agricultural classifications of property within its jurisdiction except that which is otherwise provided by law.
The effective date of the assessment is January 1st of the current year. The assessor determines a full or partial value of new construction or improvements depending upon the state of completion as of January 1st. Real property is revalued every two years (Odd numbered years are equalization years).
The assessor does not collect taxes, calculate taxes or determine the tax rate. The assessor is concerned with value, not taxes.
