Automatic Payment Plan for Real Estate Taxes

Property Tax Payment Options
Online
Goodhue County offers the option of paying property taxes online. The online payment option allows taxpayers to pay their taxes by credit card or e-check. (This will be available for current year tax after property tax statements are mailed out).

Since the county cannot accept credit card payments directly, it is using a vendor that will accept those types of payments via the Internet. A processing fee of 2.8% is charged for this service, with a minimum charge of $2. Alternatively, taxes can be paid online by e-check, which makes a direct withdrawal from a checking account. A flat fee of $2 is charged for this service.

These payment options may prevent delinquent charges (2% beginning the day after the due date and increasing each month thereafter) or the time saved mailing the payment or driving to the Government Center.  

The online payment services are optional.

By ACH
This option allows taxpayers to automatically pay their taxes from a checking or savings account. On the due dates the payment will be taken out of the specified account. Taxpayers interested in paying taxes by ACH must complete the ACH application three weeks prior to the due date and return it to the Auditor / Treasurer’s Office at:
509 W. 5th St.
Red Wing, MN 55066

By Mail
Your payment must be postmarked on or before the due date or penalties will apply. Checks should be made payable to Goodhue County Auditor / Treasurer. Pre-addressed envelopes are included with your tax statement. Our Mailing Address is:
