Kanabec County Board Reduces Penalty on Late Property Taxes
In a move designed to provide property tax relief for businesses and property owners struggling during the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Kanabec County Board of Commissioners approved a reduced penalty for property taxes due May 15, 2020. The action came at a county board meeting held on April 21.
The resolution (Resolution #14 – 4/21/20) does not change the due date for property taxes, but it does reduce the penalty for first-half taxes paid late. If first-half taxes are paid by June 30, 2020 the penalty is 1%. For first-half taxes paid by July 31, 2020 the penalty is 2%. After July 31, 2020, the regular penalty applies. The regular penalty varies by property type and increases with the length of delay. For example, residential property taxes not paid after July 31, 2020 have a 5% penalty and commercial / industrial property taxes paid after July 31, 2020 have a 9% penalty.
The resolution does not change the due date of the 2nd half property taxes which is October 15, 2020.
