In Minnesota, property taxes are due on May 15th for the first half of the year. Ramsey County has extended the deadline to July 15th for some taxpayers.
“Property tax deadline extended to July 15 for qualifying taxpayers
The deadline for payment of first-half property taxes for qualifying Ramsey County property owners who are financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis has been extended from May 15 to July 15, 2020.
Properties that qualify:
- Non-escrowed homesteads.
- Non-escrowed small businesses with annual taxes less than or equal to $50,000.
- Non-escrowed residential non-homesteads of one to three units with annual taxes less than or equal to $20,000.
Generally, the deadline extension applies to those who own a home, a residential property of one to three units, or a small business and who pay property taxes directly to the county twice per year and who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Property owners who are able to pay their property taxes by the May 15 due date are encouraged to do so to help support the county, school district, and city responses to COVID-19.” Ramsey County
If you have a mortgage your property taxes may be escrowed, which means your mortgage company has collected money from you each month and will pay the property taxes for the first half of the year on May 15th. The second half property taxes are due on October 15th, 2020.
Check your county web site to check for extensions. They are not well advertised and each county has it’s own rules. I found it by mistake when I was looking for something else.
Yes, the county does need our support and that hasn’t changed.
