For drop-off payments, rather than enter any municipal facility, between now and municipal election day on April 7, 2020 please consider using any of the 18 Municipal Secure Ballot Drop-Boxes located throughout the Municipality. This includes drop off boxes outside of City Hall, Loussac Library and Eagle River Town center. These drop boxes are emptied daily.

Thank you in advance for helping the Municipality support our community during this coronavirus COVID–19 outbreak.
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.
2020 Real Property assessment notices (green cards) will be mailed January 13, 2020. 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 $35.1 billion taxable in 2020. 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.
