Property Taxes Due Next Monday
10/11/2012 - 9:40 AM
Stearns County Auditor & Treasurer Randy Schreifels is reminding everyone living in the county that property taxes are to be paid next week. The second half of the 2012 real estate tax is due next Monday. Schreifels says that this is the last day to pay it without penalty.
Tax payments can be made online at by clicking "Property Taxes Due" and using either E-Checks or credit card, in person at the Stearns County Service Center at 3301 County Road 138 or the Treasurer's Office in the Stearns County Administration Center at 705 Courthouse Road in Room 136 downtown, or mailed, although mailed payments have to be postmarked to the post office and not to a private postage meter machine.
Late payments will be returned to the payer if the proper penalty isn't included, and state law doesn't allow any exceptions with penalties. Penalty rate information is located on the reverse side of the tax statement.
Property owners may sign up to receive tax statements and Truth in Taxation Notices by email. To get started, go to the link above, click on Property and Roads, and then Property Taxes and Requests Electronic Statements.
For questions, contact the Treasurer's Office at 320-656-3870, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
