Property Tax 101

Property Tax Refunds

​Two refund programs are available to homestead property owners. Both are through the state of Minnesota:

Regular Refund: Sometimes called the "circuit breaker," is based on your household income and the amount of property tax you pay.

Special Refund: To qualify, your net property tax must increase by at least 12 percent and $100. The special refund is not based on income. For more information or to determine if you are eligible for either of these refunds, read and fill out Form M1PR.

Forms and instructions are available from the Minnesota Department of Revenue.
