Property Tax Hardship Penalty Waiver Process

The Crow Wing County Board of Commissioners voted to approve a proposed property tax hardship penalty waiver process due to COVID-19 for the 2020 Tax Year. The goal is to target homeowners where someone in the family has been laid off or business owners that were forced to close by Executive Order of the Governor related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Qualifying residents and business owners will have late fees penalties waived for properties until July 15th, 2020, which would effectively extend the deadline for their first half property taxes, which would otherwise be due on May 15.
