Welcome to the Website of the
Minnesota Association of Assessing Officers!
MAAO is a professional association formed in 1949 of Minnesota assessors to promote high quality assessments that ensure fair and equitable property taxation throughout Minnesota. This is accomplished through education to provide competent assessment personnel and working partnerships between State and local government entities to adopt and implement sound assessment policies and procedures.
The mission of the Minnesota Association of Assessing Officers is to provide education and information to promote excellence in property appraisal and assessment administration through professional development with the highest ethical standards.
It is the vision of MAAO to be the recognized statewide leader in assessment education, mass appraisal training, and the dissemination of information for mass appraisal and property tax administration. MAAO promotes high ethical standards for Minnesota assessors and also serves as the Minnesota chapter affiliate of IAAO (http://www.iaao.org/).
