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.
Real Property assessment notices (green cards) are mailed by January 15th each year. The opportunity to discuss, correct errors or appeal your real property assessment runs for 30 days from the mailing date.
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.
The Property Appraisal Division maintains a description of approximately 100,000 parcels of real property and 10,000 personal property accounts totaling $36 billion taxable in 2017. We process and track property exemptions, valuation appeals and maintain maps showing the ownership and tax districts for the entire Municipality of Anchorage. We are a reliable source of information regarding 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 and through this website.
