Special Property Tax Refund Mailing

You received this courtesy notification because our property tax records indicate that you may be eligible for a 'special' property tax refund.

This refund is available to homeowners and has no income limit, unlike the 'regular' property tax refund.


  • You must have lived in your home on January 2, 2016 and January 2, 2017,
  • Your net property tax on your homestead must have increased by more than 12% from 2016 to 2017, and
  • The increase must have been at least $100.
  • No income limit.

Refund amount

The amount of the refund is 60% of the amount of tax paid that exceeds the 12% increase, up to $1,000. 

Fill out form M1PR, lines 18 through 30 to determine your 'special' property tax refund, and to see additional requirements.
