What is "Tax Capacity Rate?"
The "Tax Capacity Rate" is determined annually by the County Treasurer/Auditor. This rate is multiplied by the "Tax Capacity Value" to arrive at the property tax.

The "Tax Capacity Rate" is a result of dividing the property tax levies submitted by the taxing authorities (school district, county, city/township, metropolitan authorities, etc.), by the overall/total tax capacity value for that taxing jurisdiction.

A separate tax capacity rate applies to commercial/industrial/utility property because of the Fiscal Disparities (tax sharing) program in the seven county metropolitan area. Contact Anoka County Property Records and Taxation Division for information on the Fiscal Disparities program. Commercial/Industrial properties also pay a statewide general property tax.
