      Anchorage is a home rule-class city that does their own property assessments. These assessment notices are sent out mid-January each year. Every property owner will receive an assessment notice. For those who wish to appeal their property assessment, the process for doing so will be included on the assessment notice. This assessment is used to determine the amount of your property tax as well as the Anchorage School tax, as applicable.


     Tax bills go out in April and are due June 30 of each year. If paid by May 31, a discount will be applied to the face amount of what is due. Those paid after June 30 will have penalties attached.
