How will my property taxes be impacted?

The 2019 Preliminary Budget will affect individual property owners differently. Property valuations have reduced for 2019. In 2018, the average home value was $182,000; the projected average for 2019 is $178,000. The median homeowner within the City of Minot with a home valued at $178,000 would see a property tax increase of approximately $161.91 per year or $13.49 per month to their City portion of their property tax bill.

Overall, the total impact to the property owners consolidated tax bill, which comes out in December, will be an increase of about 6%. One third of that bill will go to the City of Minot.
