What is the True Value? Commercial Property Sale vs. Taxable Value

How do Minnesota assessors use market sale activity to determine the value of commercial properties?An estimate of a property's value must take into consideration economic and social trends, as well as governmental controls or regulations and environmental conditions.  When property taxes are substantially increased as a result, what recourse does an owner have?  These and other questions will be deliberated by a panel that includes city assessors, appraisers, and an attorney. How do the professionals determine appraised value?  Join us and ask them yourself!
