Property Tax Penalty Abatement


The Isanti County Board of Commissioners agreed May 6th to allow certain property owners additional time to pay the first half of their 2020 property tax without penalty due to the COVID-19 pandemic emergency, and the financial impact it has placed on many businesses and homeowners in Isanti County.

Eligible Properties

The Isanti County Board authorized the Isanti County Auditor-Treasurer to abate penalty for late payment of first half property taxes payable in 2020 subject to all of the following requirements:

  1. The taxpayer pays the entire first half installment of 2020 property taxes due on May 15, 2020 in full by June 30, 2020.
  2. The taxpayer submits a completed “Application for Property Tax Penalty or Interest Waiver” to the Isanti County Auditor-Treasurer by June 30, 2020.
  3. The property owner does not escrow the property taxes through a lending company, bank, or other third party entity as identified in the Isanti County property tax records.
  4. The property is not state-assessed property such as utility or railroad property.

All late payments of first half property taxes payable in 2020 that do not meet all of the above requirements will follow the penalty schedule prescribed by statute for late payment of property taxes.

Additionally, Isanti County Board of Commissioners encourages all property taxpayers with the financial ability to pay property taxes due on May 15, 2020 to pay by the due date as timely payment supports the critical county, school, township, and city responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Application

In order to be eligible for the penalty abatement, taxpayers must complete the Penalty-Interest Waiver Application and return it to the Auditor-Treasurer’s Office no later than June 30, 2020.
