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.
 This table shows the penalty you will pay if your property taxes due are not paid before the date shown:
