Robert J. Hiivala, Wright County Auditor/Treasurer, would like to remind all County property owners that second half property taxes for real estate properties are due October 15, 2020.
If, for some reason, you cannot locate your 2020 property tax statement and would like to get an additional copy, or if you have questions regarding your second half taxes due, this information is available online on the County website. 2011 thru 2020 property tax statements are available for reprint. If you don’t have access to the internet, call the Wright County Auditor/Treasurer Department at 763-682-7572 or 763-682-7584 during regular business hours, Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Property taxes can be mailed and postmarked no later than October 15, 2020 to avoid being assessed a late penalty. If you are mailing, send to: Robert J. Hiivala, Wright County Auditor/Treasurer, 10 2nd Street NW, Room 230, Buffalo, MN 55313.
In addition, for property owner’s convenience, there is a drop box at the north entrance of the County Government Center on 2nd Street NW in Buffalo, to the left of the main entrance. We have also added an additional drop box on the 2nd floor near the Auditor/Treasurer’s Office.
We accept E-Check and Credit Card payments for property taxes online on the County website. Enter your Property ID or address, click search, then select the red “Pay Taxes” tab.
*Please be advised that State law requires convenience fees to be charged to taxpayers who choose to make online credit card or e-check payment for property taxes (M.S. 276.02). These fees are not retained by Wright County, but rather are paid to a third party vendor to cover the costs associated with the payment services.
Payments can be made in person at the Auditor/Treasurer’s Office in the Government Center, however, due to COVID-19, it is requested that payment is made via one of the alternative options.
