You will receive your tax statement once a year. By law, all tax statements must be mailed by March 31. Mobile Home tax statements must be mailed by July 15. We do not mail second half statements. Taxpayers are responsible for the payment of their property taxes and this is not affected by a failure of the county to provide a statement for a parcel.
Tax Statements are mailed to the property owners. Your escrow company also receives your tax information from our office. You may need your tax statement for tax filing purposes and property tax refunds if applicable.
If you purchase property after the Tax Statements have been mailed, the Treasurer's office will mail a copy to you. If you do not receive the Tax Statement, please contact the Treasurer's office. It will be the taxpayer's responsibility to make sure they receive a copy of the tax statement.

Please check your closing statement or contact the realtor or attorney who handled the transaction for you. Any delinquent taxes must be paid at closing, but the current taxes do not have to be. To avoid any penalty, the taxes must be paid May 15th and October 15th (or November 15 for agriculture). Please contact the Treasurer's office for status of the taxes.

Any property taxes not paid before January 1 are considered delinquent. Delinquent notices are sent out by the Treasurer's office, telling you of the last day to pay in order to avoid printing costs along with the amount due. The Delinquent Tax list is printed in the newspaper in March each year.
To determine if you are eligible for the Property Tax Refund, you must complete form M1PR. The M1Pr form is available in the Treasurer's office or you may call the State of Minnesota at 651-296-4444.

The Senior Citizen Property Tax Deferral Program is not a tax forgiveness program - it is a low interest loan from the state. The Senior Citizens Property Tax Deferral program allows people 65 years of age or older, whose household incomes are $ 60,000 or less, to defer a portion of their property tax on their home. The deferred tax is paid by the state to your county. Interest will be charged on this loan. The Senior Citizen Property Tax Deferral Program was established to help senior citizens who were having difficulty paying their property taxes. For more information on the Senior Citizen Property Tax Deferral Program, please click here.
You need a Mobile Home Clearance Sheet from the Treasurer's office. It states that all delinquent and current taxes are paid in full. Any taxes not paid will need to be paid before the mobile home can be moved. Contact the Treasurer's office for more information.
Property taxes on any mobile home need to be paid before the title can be transferred. If your mobile home still has a title, you are responsible for transferring it. You may still be liable for the property taxes if the title isn't transferred.
