If paying by mail, please be aware that by State Statute we honor POSTMARK for timely payment. Please make sure that your payment is postmarked on or before May 16 to avoid penalty. Please note that most Post Offices use a servicing center so mail is not being postmarked until two to three days after pickup, so please plan accordingly as by Statute we must go by the postmark for penalty. Envelopes that came with tax statements have the old Government Center address and will be forwarded to our new facility for the next year.

State law requires convenience fees to be charged to the taxpayers who choose to make online debit/credit card or e-check payments for property taxes (M.S. 276.02). These fees are not retained by Wright County, but rather are paid to a third-party vendor to cover the costs associated with payment services.
