COVID-19 Relief Measures Passed by the Mille Lacs County Board
45 Day Penalty Abatement for Taxes Paid LateThe deadline to pay 1st half property taxes is May 15, however, on Tuesday the Board approved a 45 day penalty abatement for taxes paid late. This means that from May 16-June 30, if a taxpayer pays their taxes, the penalties would be waived. There is no reduction to penalty if the taxes remain unpaid beyond June 30. In order to take advantage of the tax abatement, the taxes must actually be paid. No action or application is required. This is something staff will automatically do.
Liquor License CreditFor the businesses with an on-sale liquor license (serving alcohol onsite), the Board approved a one-time credit in the amount of $283 towards the renewal of their liquor license for the period July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021. This applies only to existing businesses with existing on sale licenses looking to renew their license. It reduces the cost for them to renew their license.
