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.
The Property Appraisal Division maintains a description of approximately 100,000 parcels of real property and 10,000 accounts of personal property totaling $35 billion taxable in 2015. 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.
