If you pay your first half or second half property tax after the due dates, a penalty will be added to your property tax balance.  The later you pay, the greater the penalty you must pay. 

Please see the Minnesota Department of Revenue's Sample Tax Statement for the current penalty schedule.  The table lists penalty amounts added to your tax if your property taxes are not paid before the date shown.

Please reference Minnesota Statutes 279.01 for additional information.

The McLeod County Board of Commissioners and the McLeod County Auditor-Treasurer encourage all taxpayers to pay their taxes timely, in order to keep the payments as close to normal for the taxing authorities in consideration of their cash flow capacities.
