Property tax deadline is May 15
Property taxes on Dakota County real estate for the first half of 2014 are due Thursday, May 15.
According to state law, the County will assess a penalty for late payments. The penalty depends on the tax amount, property classification and when the payment is made. Penalties are listed on the back of property tax statements that were sent to residents earlier this year.
Property taxes can be paid online, by phone or by mail. Mailed payments must be postmarked by midnight May 15 to be considered timely. Payments can also be made in person at several locations.
