Crow Wing County property owners are receiving both their annual notice of property valuation and classification for taxes payable next year, and their tax statement for taxes due this year. Both notices are in one envelope.
The notice of property valuation and classification shows the 2021 value and classification of the property for taxes payable in 2022. Property owners are encouraged to review current valuation and classification because these will be relied upon to determine taxes due in 2022.
Property owners are encouraged to contact the Crow Wing County Land Services Department with any questions about their 2021 valuation or classification reported in the notice.
The 2021 tax statement also included in the mailing shows taxes due this year. The amount owed is determined by applying last year’s property valuation and classification to this year’s spending levels approved by local units of government.
Each tax statement shows the amount of tax dollars that need to be paid, and by when, in 2021. First-half of 2021 property taxes are due May 15 for most property classifications. Payments after May 15 may be subject to penalties.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Crow Wing County strongly encourages taxpayers who do not escrow their taxes to use one of the following payment options:
- Online via e-check, debit or credit card. Log onto the county website at www.crowwing.us, click on “How Do I," and under “Pay” select “Property Tax." You will need your 8-digit parcel identification number for each parcel paid. There is a 2.35% fee charged by the payment processor for all card payments.
- By mail. Check or money order payments are accepted by mail. They can be sent to 322 Laurel St., Suite 15, Brainerd, MN 56401. Tax payments sent by mail must be postmarked no later than May 15 or they may be subject to late penalties.
It is important for taxpayers to know that mail often is processed at a location some distance from where it is mailed, and postmarked at least one day later, unless it is hand stamped at a post office before mailing. Taxpayers are advised to drop their payment in the mail at least three days prior to the May 15 deadline.
Note on your payment if you would like a receipt mailed to you and include your email address if you want your receipt emailed to you.
- Drop box located outside of the Land Services Building. Note on your payment if you would like a receipt mailed to you and include your email address if you want your receipt emailed to you.
For delinquent taxes, residents should call the Land Services office before mailing or dropping off payment to ensure they are paying the correct amount and are not subject to late penalties.
Taxpayers are encouraged to contact the Land Services Department with any questions they may have about their property’s valuation and classification, or their 2021 tax statement. Call 218-824-1010, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.crowwing.us.
