Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1) I am selling or buying a house in Saint Paul. Whom should I call to make sure I have all the assessment information on the property?
Answer: Go to our Assessment Lookup to check for assessments on the property. You should also contact the following:
City of Saint Paul - Department of Safety and Inspections (DSI)
|City charges that have not been sent to Real Estate/Assessments for processing as an assessment|
Saint Paul Regional Water Services
|Any unpaid water bills|
Ramsey County Property Records and Revenue
|Property taxes owed|
2) Whom should I call with questions about city services?
|Boulevard tree maintenance||651-266-6400|
|Citywide garbage service||651-266-6101|
|Sidewalk repair & replacement||651-266-6120|
|Streets and alleys (24-hour service number)||651-266-9700|
3) I sent a payment for an assessment in December. Why was it returned to me?
At the end of each calendar year the City is required to “certify” to Ramsey County a calculated amount of principal and interest owed by any property with unpaid city assessments. This amount is placed on the county property tax statement mailed to each property owner the following spring.
Payments received after November 15th for certified assessments are no longer payable to the City of Saint Paul, therefore they are returned to the payee.
