Property tax statements are in the mail

Get tax statements by e-mail

Property tax statements for taxes payable in 2013 are going out to Stearns County property owners. Statements will be mailed early this week. Property owners who signed up to receive electronic tax statements should have received their statement by e-mail last week.

It’s not too late to sign up to receive tax statements and tax notices electronically. Stearns County Auditor-Treasurer Randy Schreifels said electronic statements not only save the County money on printing and mailing costs, but provides better service to our residents. “Electronic statements are much more convenient for our taxpayers. They’ll get statements quicker, be able to store them easier electronically, and if they lose a statement we can send them a replacement copy without any problem,” said Schreifels.

To sign up for electronic statements, go to the Stearns County website at www.co.stearns.mn.us, there’s a link in the blue box on the left side of the home page. Complete the online form and Stearns County will begin e-mailing the information. Those who are registered will receive their Truth-in-Taxation notice electronically as well as their property tax statement.

Tax payments can also be made online on the Stearns County website. In addition, residents can subscribe to receive tax due date reminders. First half of property taxes are due May 15, 2013.

More information can be found on the website or any tax questions can be directed to the Stearns County Auditor-Treasurer’s office at (320) 656-3870.
