The Becker County Assessor is appointed by the County Board of Commissioners and approved by the Minnesota Commissioner of Revenue. He/she supervises the property assessments of all townships and cities within the county. The property assessments are made by State accredited and certified appraisal staff from the county office and by State certified assessors hired by townships and cities.

These studies are used by the County Assessor to adjust and equalize all values between individual properties, taxing districts, school districts, and adjacent counties.
