Auctioneer Licenses are effective for one year from the date of issuance.
Applicants must complete an application provided by the County Auditor’s Office. The bottom of the application must be signed stating that the required bond ($1,000) is on file. The bond is left on file with the County Treasurer’s Office. The completed form is provided to the Auditor’s Office for further processing.
If an Auctioneer has an assigned number from the previous year, it will be reassigned. If the applicant is not on the current listing, the next highest number will be assigned. All license numbers in Aitkin County begin with 01.
Aitkin County’s fee is $20; check, money order, or cash. Checks or money orders payable to Aitkin County.
If all application forms are completed and the fee is received, Auditor’s Office staff will be able to issue a license within a short period of time that same day (in most cases).
