ARE IOWA PROPERTY TAX PAYMENT DEADLINES EXTENDED?

The Governor has issued a proclamation that waives penalty and interest that would have accrued if someone did not pay property tax by April 1, 2020.  If someone doesn't pay by April 1, 2020, the person would still be technically "delinquent," he or she just wouldn't owe penalty and itnerest for the late payment.  Treasurers will still have authority to send a delinquency notice if payment is not received ahead of April 1, 2020.

MINNESOTA HAS A "STAY AT HOME" ORDER.  CAN I CONDUCT BUSINESS IN MINNESOTA OR DO I NEED A FORM TO ENTER OR TRAVEL THROUGHOUT THE STATE?

No, you do not need "papers" to travel throughout Minnesota.  It is much more of a strong suggestion to significantly limit unnecessary interactions.  See the explanation of the rules from the Minnesota governer's office here.‚Äč
