  • Is personal property taxable in Minnesota?Back to top

    No, unless specifically outlined in Minnesota Statutes. Personal property (like tools, equipment, money, and stocks) is generally exempt from taxes in Minnesota.

    Taxable personal property includes:

    • certain utility systems;
    • railroad docks and wharves;
    • improvements on federal or exempt land;
    • leasehold or other property that would be taxable if the lessee or user were the fee owner;
    • certain manufactured homes; and
    • flight property

    However, if someone leases otherwise-exempt government-owned property, and there are improvements on that property, those improvements are taxed as personal property to the lessee.  They are not “personal property” per se, but are taxed as such so that the taxes are in personam rather than a lien against the real property.  These taxes are imposed and billed at the county level.

    For more information, see Minnesota Statutes 272.02, subd. 9.

  • Where can I get a copy of my property tax statement?Back to top

    Your county treasurer can provide a copy of your property tax statement and answer any questions you may have about the statement.  

    The county treasurer mails these statements to property owners by March 31 each year. Tax payments are due to your county on May 15 and October 15, for most properties.  

    For contact information, check your local phone book or see County Websites on Minnesota.gov​
