Penalties On Late Property Tax Payments
If you pay your first half and/or second half property tax after the due date,
Minnesota state law requires a penalty be added to your tax.
The later you pay, the greater the penalty you must pay.
TO AVOID A PENALTY, MAILED ENVELOPES MUST BE POSTMARKED
BY THE DUE DATE TO BE CONSIDERED PAID ON TIME.
