Rice County property appraisers are currently working in the cities of Faribault and Northfield

The Rice County Assessor has responsibility to keep the information on all Rice County Real Estate parcels current and accurate. In fact Minnesota Statutes require the appraisers in the Assessor’s Office to actually view all improvements and structures at maximum intervals of five years.  Rice County has approximately 30,000 parcels and to comply with the statute, 6,000 parcels must be viewed and inspected annually.

With COVID-19 restrictions, our top priority is the safety of everyone. In order to complete the required reviews, the Rice County property appraisers will be viewing property from a distance and they will not be knocking on doors. The appraisers will have Rice County identification visible, wear high visibility vests with Rice County Minnesota printed on the back. They will drive Rice County cars or their personal cars with RICE COUNTY magnetic signs on the doors. The appraisers will stop in front of each property and compare what they see to our current records and take an updated photo of the property.

Address any questions to the Rice County Assessor’s Office at 507-332-6102 or  Check out the Assessor’s page on the Rice County Website for jurisdictions that appraisers are viewing.
