NOTICE OF DELINQUENT TAXES

State of Minnesota District Court

County of LAKE Sixth Judicial District

TO: ALL PERSONS WITH A LEGAL IN­TEREST IN THE PARCELS OF REAL PROPERTY DESCRIBED IN THE FOL­LOWING DELINQUENT TAX LIST

A list of real property in Lake County on which delinquent real property taxes and penalties are due has been filed with the district court administrator of Lake County. This list is published to inform all persons that the listed property is subject to forfei­ture because of delinquent taxes.

The property owner, taxpayer, or other in­terested person must either pay the tax and penalty plus interest and costs or file a written objection with the district court administrator. The objection must be filed on or before the 20th day after the pub­lication of this notice and list, stating the reason(s) why the tax or penalty is not due on the property. If no objection is filed, a court judgment will be entered against the property for the unpaid tax, penalty, inter­est and costs.

For property under court judgment, the period of redemption begins on May 13, 2024. The period of redemption means the time within which taxes must be paid to avoid losing the property through for­feiture. The period of redemption is three years, with a handful of exceptions. The re­demption period is one year for most prop­erties located in a targeted neighborhood, as defined in the Minnesota laws, and for municipal solid waste disposal facilities. The redemption period is five weeks for certain abandoned or vacant properties.

You may also enter into a confession of judgment as an alternative method to paying off the delinquent tax amount and avoiding forfeiture. This allows you to pay the delinquent balance in equal annual installments, with a down payment due at the time you enter into the confession. The length of the installment plan varies: five years for commercial-industrial/public utility property; 10 years for all other prop­erties.

If you have homesteaded property, you may be eligible for a Senior Citizen’s Prop­erty Tax Deferral, which enables seniors to pay just three percent of their total house­hold income and allow the remaining amounts to become a lien on the property that may be deferred for later payment (perhaps upon the eventual sale of the property).

It should also be noted by property home­steaders that you are ineligible to receive the Property Tax Refund while you owe delinquent property tax.

To determine how much interest and costs must be added to pay the tax in full, con­tact the Lake County Auditor’s Office, Lake County Courthouse, 601 3rd Ave Two Har­bors, Minnesota, 55616.
