Beginning Wed., Oct. 1, 2014, the Minnesota Department of Revenue will no longer accept paper certificates of real estate values (CRV’s) and will only be able to accept electronic certificate of real estate value (eCRV) online submissions. Paper CRV’s will not be accepted after September 30, 2014. Electronic CRV submission is a step towards improving the quality and efficiency of property tax administration across the state. CRV’s provide important information regarding the transfer of property during a real estate transaction. It is required to be completed for almost all sales.
Blue Earth County is in the process of helping share information with agencies and individuals throughout the County affected by the new Minnesota Department of Revenue eCRV process. Information, instructions and a computer terminal for use in filing eCRV’s will be available for patrons to use in the lobby of Blue Earth County Taxpayer Services located on the first floor of the Historic Courthouse at 204 S. 5th Street, Mankato.
More information regarding eCRV’s and online technical support is available at www.revenue.state.mn.us or by contacting (651) 556-3278.
