Method 1 is to publish the notice of delinquent taxes and the delinquent tax list in a newspaper designated by the County Board.
Method 2 is made by mailing a personalized delinquent tax letter and a copy of the notice of delinquent taxes to the property owners, taxpayers of record and other interested parties who have filed under M.S. 276.041.
•Publication of notice – all parties holding an interest in the property
•Certified mailing of notice – primarily for owners and taxpayers
•Service of notice – specifically for occupants of the property
•If taxes are due for two or more years, payments may be made in inverse order (delinquent tax amount due immediately preceding the current year) before the redemption period expires until all delinquent taxes are paid in full
•If eligible – the property owner or taxpayer may “confess judgment” by signing an agreement to pay the total delinquent amount due in installments.
•Unpaid delinquent special assessments (if any)
•Penalties imposed on unpaid real estate property taxes and special assessments (if any) during the year when taxes are due
•Total interest accrued on the delinquent taxes, penalties and county costs up through the time of payment
•County costs for administering the delinquent tax laws
If you would like a full duplicate tax statement, you can call 218-631-7621 and request a duplicate be sent to you.
For example: the class rate for homestead property is significantly less than the class rate for commercial or industrial property. The classification of a parcel determines what percentages are to be used to determine the total tax capacity of each parcel in Wadena County.
The "Tax Capacity Rate" is a result of dividing the property tax levies submitted by the taxing authorities (school district, county, city/township, metropolitan authorities, etc.), by the overall/total tax capacity value for that taxing jurisdiction.
This is not the meeting to discuss your taxable market value.
If you paid off or refinanced your mortgage and were escrowing your tax payment, you are responsible for paying the taxes due. Failure to timely pay your taxes due to not receiving or having a tax statement will not forgive the imposition of penalty and interest.
If you have not received your tax statement(s) by April 1st on any year, please call 218-631-7621 and request a duplicate.
Manufactured homes and park trailers are exempt from motor vehicle taxation and are subject to property taxation as either real or personal property. Travel trailers are subject to motor vehicle taxation and must be issued a license plate. Sectional structures must be valued and assessed as an improvement to real property if the owner of the structure owns the land on which the manufactured home is located or is a qualifying lessee of the land.
TaxationManufactured home personal property tax statements must be mailed by July 15. If the taxes are greater than $50, they are due in two equal installments on August 31 and November 15. If the taxes are less than or equal to $50, they are due in full on August 31. Taxes remaining unpaid after the due date are delinquent, a penalty of eight percent must be assessed and collected as part of the unpaid taxes.
Taxes Paid Before Transfer of TitleA certificate of title is required for a manufactured home. The title to a manufactured home cannot be transferred unless the application for transfer of title is accompanied by a Mobile Home Transfer/Clearance Sheet. A Mobile Home Transfer/Clearance Sheet for homes located in Morrison County are issued by the County Auditor/Treasurer. The document is proof that all taxes levied on the unit in the name of the current owner have been paid. This applies even if the transfer of title is requested prior to tax statements being issued for the current year, taxes are considered to be levied as of January 1 of the payable year. There is no charge to obtain a Mobile Home Transfer/Clearance Sheet from the County Auditor/Treasurer.
The Parcel ID Number or PIN, is the number assigned to your property to identify it for taxation purposes. It can be found on your property tax statement, Truth-in-Taxation notice, your assessment or valuation notice and most other documents received from the county tax offices. You can contact the Auditor's Office at 218-631-7621 to find out your Parcel Number if you do not have the above documents available
