State Deed Tax
Instruments requiring deed tax per MSA 287.21 must state the amount of tax due, or if it is exempt. The tax will be calculated at a rate of .0033 per the amount of consideration, exclusive of the value of any lien or encumbrance remaining at the time of the sale. The minimum amount is $1.65.

Example: $100,200.00 x .0033 = $330.66
                                       New minimum deed tax takes effect on January 1, 2020.

                                      Consideration $0.00 to $3,000.00 is $1.65 tax. No e-CRV is required.

                                      Any amount $3,000.01 or more needs an e-CRV completed.


Mortgage Registration Tax
For instruments taxable under MSA 287.05, tax will be calculated at a rate of .0023 of the principal debt or obligation that is secured by any mortgage of real property in the State of Minnesota.
