Property and Assessment Verification Request

To receive a written response itemizing all outstanding balances that relate to a particular property within the City, or for more detailed information than what is available on the City's website, a formal special assessment records request is required. A written request for search and retrieval of records is initiated by completing a Property and Assessment Verification Request Form. Follow the instructions below regarding the online services platform to complete your request. 

Notes:

  • Requests must be submitted using Oakdale’s online services platform
  • Fees must be collected before staff will begin the record request.
  • Response times are typically three business days, although city staff will work diligently to process requests as quickly as possible. Companies and individuals should not expect a same-day turnaround for information. Plan your business needs accordingly to allow for staff to respond to your request for information.
  • Please follow up with all other taxing jurisdictions (including Washington County and relevant watershed district) to identify any other pending or levied assessments. 

NOTE: As of close of business (4:30 PM) on Thursday, February 2, the online form for property and assessment search will not be available. We are preparing our platform for launch of our online building permits on Monday, February 6. Please check back then for updates and to complete applications. For questions, please call 651-739-5150.
