Minnesota Program Eligibility
Through the Homestead Credit Refund (for Homeowners) and Renter’s Property Tax Refund program, Minnesota offers property tax relief to both homeowners and renters, including mobile homeowners and those living in nursing homes, assisted living or adult foster care. Homeowners may be eligible for a special property tax refund depending on the increased taxes on their homestead. Having dependents, being over age 65, contributing to a retirement plan, or living with a disability may also increase the amount of refunds.
Property Tax-Aide also features the Property Tax Deferral Program for Senior Citizens in Minnesota.
