BUT if you get Social Security retirement, disability (SSDI) or survivor benefits they already have your information. You don’t need to give it again UNLESS you have qualifying children under age 17. Then you need to give the information about your child to get the extra $500. Use this link to do that: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here.
Property taxes in Minnesota are usually due twice a year, on May 15 and October 15. They are paid to the county where your property is.
There is no change to your property tax due date or amount if your taxes are paid by an escrow with your mortgage payment. If you need help with your mortgage payments, see our COVID-19 Mortgage and Foreclosure information.
If you don’t have an escrow, some counties are accepting late property tax payments with no penalty.
Hennepin, Ramsey, and Stearns Counties are giving people until July 15th to make their first half property tax payment. They won’t charge a late penalty or additional interest if you pay by July 15th.
Benton, Sherburne, and Wright Counties lowered the penalties for late property tax payments. In Sherburne and Wright, if you pay between May 16 and June 30, the penalty is 1%. If you pay between July 1 and July 31, the penalty is 2%. In Benton, if you pay between May 16 and July 31, the penalty is half of what it normally is.
If your property is in a different county, you need to check with the county where you pay property taxes to see if there is a change. Use this link to find the contact information for your county: https://mn.gov/portal/government/local/counties/.
