Property tax deadline extended through July 15 for qualifying taxpayers
The Dakota County Board of Commissioners approved to allow qualifying taxpayers financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis additional time to pay their first-half property taxes. First half 2020 property tax payments can be made through July 15, 2020 without penalty for qualifying property.
Qualifying property includes:
- Non-escrowed residential property
- Non-escrowed agricultural, vacant rural and open space property
- Non-escrowed commercial and industrial property
- Non-escrowed apartments
Taxpayers who escrow their first half taxes through a mortgage or escrow agency as well as properties classified as utility, railroad, machinery and transmission lines would not qualify for the property tax payment extension.
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, and city responses to COVID-19.
If you would like more information on the property tax extension, you may contact Dakota County at 651-438-4576 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
