County treasurers must, upon making full settlement with the county auditor, electronically submit receipts of state property taxes using the department’s e-Services system. This is a free service and is the only acceptable method for making these payments. If you have questions on using the e-Services system, view How to use e-Services for State General Property Tax Payments.
Please fill out and return the Settlement Report to the department at least one day before making your payment through e-Services. We prefer to receive your Settlement Report by fax to 651-556-5181 (please note the change in fax number). You may send the report in PDF or system-generated format. Do not include TIF payments to the State Auditor with your State General Tax payment.
