Property Appraisal

​​​​​​​​​​​

 

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. 

2021 Real Property assessment notices (green cards) will be mailed January 12, 2021.  The opportunity to discuss, correct errors or appeal your real property assessment runs for 30 days from the mailing date. The 30-day review period starts from the mailing date of the valuation notice.  The review period is a good time to discuss a concern with an appraiser, correct errors, or file a formal appeal on your real property assessment. Generally, the earlier you contact Property Appraisal, the better we can serve you. If you have any questions on the 30-day review period or the appeal process, please visit our Appeal FAQs.

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 approximately $35.2 billion taxable in 2021. We process and track property exemptions, valuation appeals and maintain records showing the ownership and tax districts for the entire Municipality of Anchorage. 

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., through this website, or by calling our appeal hotline, (907) 343-6500. At this time, we encourage calling the appeal hotline in lieu of walk-ins. Out of abundance of caution, we are closing our front counter contact from January 12th to January 15th.
