Real estate tax payments due May 15
Douglas County auditor/treasurer Char Rose-now 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 by May 15 or payments made in person by 4:30 p.m.
Douglas County also offers the Automated Clearing House (ACH) direct payment program, where tax payments are automatically taken out of the account of choice on the tax due date. An e-mail notification will be sent two weeks prior.
For information or to receive an ACH form, call the auditor/treasurer’s office at (320) 762-3077.
