Wabasha County Assessor:
What are eCRVs?
Electronic “certificates of real estate value.” These are up-to-date records of the value of Minnesota real estate, and are necessary to document property sales. The counties where the sales are made and the Minnesota Department of Revenue use them to verify the terms of sales, and to ensure that we are fairly and equitably assessing the taxable value of property statewide. The eCRV is taking place of the old paper copies of CRVs that have been used in the past.
The County Assessor is appointed by the Wabasha County Commissioners for a four-year period. The Assessor's office is responsible for the assessment of all real, personal and exempt property in Wabasha County. Minnesota State Statute 273.11 reads: "All property shall be valued at its market value."
The Assessor's office also sends out valuation notices and is responsible for holding local and county Boards of Review. We maintain the assessments of over 16,000 real and personal property parcels.
The Assessor's office is also responsible for determining if a property is eligible for homestead.
