The Assessment Division discovers, lists and values (appraises) all real and personal property* in Matanuska Susitna Borough. According to state law, property must be assessed at its "full and true value" as of the annual assessment date of January 1. In order to accomplish this, physical inventories of property characteristics are gathered and maintained. Mass appraisal techniques are employed to fairly and equitably appraise property at the lowest possible cost to the taxpayers of the borough.
The Assessment Division is also responsible for maintaining ownership records, including parcel maps, based on recorded documents. In addition, this office accepts exemption applications and makes decisions concerning property tax exemptions according to state law.
*Taxable personal property is business inventory, with the first $1,000,000 being exempt.
