Tax Relief Programs
This page provides information on property tax relief and contact information.

The Scott County Auditor’s Office and the Minnesota Department of Revenue identified the following three programs that offer either a direct refund or deferment of property taxes.

While the first two programs consist of a refund, the senior program allows eligible senior citizens to postpone paying – or defer – a portion of their homestead property taxes. Senior citizens who elect to participate will only have to pay a tax equal to 3% of their net income. The remaining tax will be paid as a low interest loan by the State of Minnesota. The unpaid tax plus interest becomes a lien on the property which must be satisfied upon sale of the property.
