Penalties

REAL ESTATE TAXES ARE DUE MAY 15TH


Sherburne County Auditor/Treasurer Diane Arnold would like to remind taxpayers that the first half of their Real Estate taxes for 2020 are due on or before May 15th. Postmarks are due on or before the 15th, but a Penalty will be assessed after that date.  

Please note that most Post Offices now use a servicing center so mail is not being postmarked until two to three days after pick up so please plan accordingly as by Statute we must go by the postmark for penalty.

 Our County Commissioners have approved of reducing the penalty amount charged to 1% from May 16 to June 30th after that date the penalty goes to 2% for the month of July. 

This does not include Utility nor Personal Property parcels. 

There is an after-hours drop-box by the MAIN entrance (door A) on the right. Questions?

To avoid penalty, personal property taxes must be paid in full on or before May 15th. Personal property taxes cannot be paid in first and second half installments unless the property is situated on leased government lands; then the 1st half must be paid on or before May 15th to 2nd half before October 15th.

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

The following tables show the penalty you will pay if your property taxes due are not paid before the due date shown.
