Mortgage registry and deed tax calculator
Mortgage registry tax
Mortgage registry tax (MRT) is paid when recording a mortgage. The rate is 0.0024* of the purchase price (Example: $100,000 X 0.0024 = $240.00 MRT).
If you need to claim an exemption from MRT or document the basis of your tax, use the state's MRT1 form.
Learn more about MRT at Department of Revenue MRT.
State deed tax
State Deed tax (SDT) is paid when recording an instrument conveying Minnesota real property. The rate is 0.0034* of the purchase price (Example: $100,000 X 0.0034 = $340.00 SDT).
