Abatement Policy for Penalties, Interests and Fees pertaining to late and delinquent property taxes for Residential Owner-occupied Properties

I supported this policy that grants limited hardship abatement of penalties due to non-payment of property taxes.  This policy is intended to lessen the chance that low-income residents would be forcibly removed from their home.  This is not abatement of the property tax itself; this only applies to penalties, fees, and interest that may accrue do property taxes that have not been paid.  There are strict guidelines to determine if a homeowner is eligible for hardship abatement.  Please note that detailed application is necessary.  If you have questions about this policy you can direct them to the Olmsted County Property Records and Licensing (PRL).
