Tax Deductions

In some cases tax increases can be off-set by property tax refunds, deductibility and deferrals. Information on those options can be found below.

  • Minnesota Homestead Credit Refund: Applies for homeowners with an adjusted gross income below $108,660.
  • Special Property Tax Refund: Applies if your property taxes increase by more than 12 percent and more than $100 from one year to the next. There is no income limit for this refund.
  • Deductibility of Property Taxes for State and Federal Income Taxes: If you itemize deductions for federal income taxes, you may deduct all property taxes paid.
  • Senior Citizen Property Tax Deferral: If you are 65 years or older and have a household income of $60,000 or less, you may be eligible to defer a portion of the property taxes on your home.
