Payments for property taxes may be made in person, through the mail or online.

To mail your payment send check or money order, made payable to 'Lake County  Auditor', to 601 Third Avenue, Two Harbors, MN 55616.

If you have any questions about how much is owed on your taxes, please give us a call (218) 834-8315.

Due dates for property taxes are as follows:

Real Estate

    • May 15th - first half for all real estate
    • October 15th - second half for commercial and residential  property
    • November 15th - second half for agricultural property

Personal Property

  • May 15th - in full

Mobile Homes

  • August 31st - first half
  • November 15th - second half

Note: The title to your mobile home cannot be transferred unless the total personal property taxes due on your manufactured home at the time of transfer, including any delinquent taxes you owe, are paid.

To avoid a penalty, envelopes must be postmarked by the due date to be considered on time.

If you pay your first half and second half property tax after the due date, a penalty will be added to your tax.  The later you pay, the  greater the penalty.  If you are paying late, please call us at  (218) 834-8315 to find out the total amount of taxes due on your parcel(s).
