In recognition of the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the Anoka County Board April 27 adopted a resolution granting owners of residential and non-residential properties one more month to pay their property taxes without penalty.
This abatement will apply only to current year non-escrow properties with under $50,000 annual property tax owed for all properties owned by the taxpayer, excluding railroad and utility parcels. This abatement will also apply only if the first half payment is made in full by June 15.
Taxpayers must complete an application to qualify for this abatement. The application is available at anokacounty.us/1067/Property-Records-Taxation.
“The effect of COVID-19 on our local, state, and national economy has been devastating, and the Anoka County Board of Commissioners realizes many homeowners and businesses are struggling right now,” Board Chair Scott Schulte said in a statement. “Giving them more time to pay their first-half property taxes is within the purview of the board, and we hope this resolution helps ease the fears of our residents and small business owners.”
