What if my property sold or appraised for more than the assessed value?

The appraisal rules for Minnesota property tax appeals are unique.  Appraisal rules vary depending on the intended use and the intended user of the appraisal.  For example, Laurie was engaged to tax appeal a  large property.  The City handed her a well written appraisal that the City had ordered for the purpose of buying a sliver of land for a road project.  That appraisal was for $23.2 million: Laurie got the assessed value reduced to $8.8 million.
