How do I know if my property is classified as a homestead?

Your property tax statement will note if your property is classified as a homestead. You may view the property tax statement sent to you from Mille Lacs County (usually sent out in March or April. If you own a mobile home, you may not receive your statement until mid-July). Do not look at your Notice of Proposed Taxes that was sent in November.

If your statement does not classify your property as a homestead, and you meet the necessary homestead qualifications, you must apply for homestead status in person at the Mille Lacs County Assessor’s Office. Be sure to call the office at 320-983-8311 prior to coming in to make sure you bring all of the necessary items. You must have occupied the home by December 1, and you must apply for homestead by December 15 of each year.
