All property except tribal lands is taxable. It’s up to the property owner to prove their property qualifies for exemption. The three key elements in determining exemption are ownership, use and necessity of the ownership. A complete list of properties that may qualify for a property tax exemption can be found in Minnesota Statute 272.02.
Property that is taxable as of January 2 of an assessment year, which may become eligible for exemption prior to July 1 of that year, may be exempt for that assessment year if it is used for an exempt purpose.
Application must be made by February 1 for the current assessment year
