First half real estate tax payments due May 15

Douglas County auditor/treasurer Char Rosenow issued a reminder to property owners that the first half real estate tax payments are due on or before Thursday, May 15.

If you received a statement that has Kandiyohi County on it, the dollar amounts are correct, but the check should be made to Douglas County, not Kandiyohi County. Call (320) 762-3077 for a corrected statement.

To avoid penalty, envelopes must be postmarked no later than May 15. Payments may also be made in person until 4:30 p.m. on May 15.

Douglas County also offers the Automated Clearing House (ACH) direct payment program. With this program, the tax payment will be automatically taken out of the account of choice on the tax due date. An e-mail notification will be sent approximately two weeks prior to the tax due date.

For more information or to receive an ACH form, call the Douglas County auditor/treasurer’s office at (320) 762-3077.
