Understanding Minnesota Property Taxes

Overview of Minnesota Taxes

Minnesota collects a total of $58,835,362,000 in revenue every year. Of that, $8,901,655,000 comes from property taxes, or 15.1% of total revenue. As a result, Minnesota has the 19th highest property tax rate in the country, which is 7.0% more than the national average of 1.06%. Generally speaking, states where property taxes make up a higher percentage of total state revenue have higher property tax rates, and states where property taxes make up a smaller percentage of state revenue have lower property tax rates.

How does this translate to what homeowners actually pay? The average home value across Minnesota is $221,036, meaning the average Minnesota homeowner pays 1.14% of their home value every year in property taxes, or $11.39 for every $1,000 in home value.

Property Tax Calendar

Minnesota's property tax system is governed by state statute, which means that despite significant variation in what homeowners in different parts of Minnesota, there are important constants. Minnesota's assessment date, which is both the point in time when the owner of a property is liable for property tax and the point in time at the property's value is determined, is January 2. Minnesota property tax appeals, which allow homeowners to contest the assessment, varies by locality. The date which property tax bills become due on is May 15 and October 15.
