Know who collects property related special assessments and taxes
In Minnesota, the checks and balances philosophy requires that the Assessor’s Office be completely separated from tax collection.
Special assessments generated by the City of Duluth are collected by the City Treasurer’s Office.
Payments for storm water utility are collected by Comfort Systems.
Property taxes are billed and collected by the St. Louis County Auditor.
At some point in time, the property tax bill would also include any delinquent special assessment, storm water utility and garbage balances due, as such liabilities eventually become liens against the property.
The City of Duluth Assessor’s Office does not collect any taxes or payments related to special assessments, storm water utility and delinquent garbage bills.
