Quake Damage May Affect Property Assessment
Property owners who have sustained damage to their real property and did not have it repaired by January 1, 2019, may report this damage by contacting the Municipality of Anchorage Property Appraisal Division.
Anchorage Municipal Code allows the Assessor to issue a corrected assessment for significant damage received in the 2018 Point MacKenzie earthquake. Property owners that have significant earthquake damage that was not identified or that was not quantified before the 30-day appeal period was closed may request a review of their property value.
Request for Corrective Assessment due to Earthquake damage
You may contact the Assessment office by phone; (907) 343-6770, mail; P.O. Box 196650, Anchorage, Alaska 99519, or stop in and see us at 632 W. 6th Avenue room 300 between 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
The Property Appraisal Division, headed by the Municipal Assessor, is charged with locating, identifying and valuing all taxable real property and personal property within the Municipality in order to provide a fair and equitable basis for taxation. We are required by State law to make an independent estimate of value each year and to visit each property at least once every six years.
2019 Real Property assessment notices (green cards) will be mailed January 15, 2019. The opportunity to discuss, correct errors or appeal your real property assessment runs for 30 days from the mailing date.
Property values and descriptions are available on this website by clicking on the "Search Properties" link to the right. Property owners are required by State law to notify the Property Appraisal Division of errors or omissions in their property assessment.
The Property Appraisal Division maintains a description of approximately 100,000 parcels of real property and 10,000 personal property accounts totaling $34.2 billion taxable in 2018. We process and track property exemptions, valuation appeals and maintain records showing the ownership and tax districts for the entire Municipality of Anchorage. This website contains information regarding property valuation, ownership and property description.
Public information regarding assessed values and other assessment data is available to "walk-in" customers at our front counter on the third floor of City Hall, 632 W. 6th Ave., and through this website.
