Special Assessments

Effect on Property Taxes

The City places special assessments on a property’s taxes in cases such as street and utility projects, delinquent invoices for weed trimming, and unpaid utility bills. All special assessments are certified to the Dakota County Treasurer-Auditor’s Office.

For a paid assessment search related to pending or levied assessments and payoff balances, please send an inquiry via email or call 651-423-4411.

If you have questions about a road or street construction project underway this year, visit the Construction Updates page.

Unpaid Utility Balances

Because unpaid utility balances will be certified to the county tax rolls, see the Water/Sewer Utility Billing page for information such as whom to contact for current balances or to schedule a final meter reading when property is changing ownership.

Dakota County offers data on individual properties. Contact the Property Taxation and Records Department, by calling 651-438-4576 or the Assessor’s Office, at 651-438-4200.
