    • Returned payments - when making online payments, accurately key your account information to avoid returned payments which will result in additional fees and a penalty.

      Per Minnesota law, a service fee is applied to each transaction. Service fees are charged and retained by a third-party vendor for online payments. Payments are considered timely if processed by 11:59 p.m. on the due date.
  • Penalty must be added to the unpaid amount if not received on or before the due date. 
    • Penalty rates range from 2% to 14%. The later the payment the greater the penalty.
    • To avoid penalty:
      • Envelope must be postmarked on or before the due date. Only official U.S. postmark is used to determine payment mail date.
      • If using a bank's bill pay system, please verify mailing requirements to allow for timely postmark. Also, make sure to accurately key all information to avoid delayed payments which could result in penalty.

Failure to receive a property tax statement does not exempt the taxpayer from timely payment of the taxes due. First half tax payments must be paid in full with penalty (if applicable) prior to applying money toward second half payment. If you are unsure of how penalty is calculated or what is due, please contact us at (952) 361-1910.
