Property Tax Refund (CRP)

When you live off campus some of your rent goes to pay property taxes for the property in which you live. Many student residents are unaware that they may be eligible for a tax refund from the State of Minnesota for a certain percentage of the rent they pay in any calendar year. Around the end of January each year you will receive a “Certificate of Rent Paid” form via email from Bluff City Properties LLC. Eligible renters may get a check back from the State of Minnesota based on this documentation. Look for your CRP in your inbox at the end of January and contact your tax professional for more information.

Bette Wright

I like to live alone and socialize when I feel like it. The Quad 2.0 is perfect for me. Pretty much ideal for college housing. A place of my own, pretty inexpensive and right across the street from the Wsu campus. Can’t beat it really. Check it out.

Mark Middendorf

WsYou/Bluff City is the best provider in the Winona area, hands down. I rented from them for 3 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. You really should do yourself a favor and check them out if you need housing in Winona.

Margarita Krause

Great choice for student housing. Stayed here in the fall for an internship, and had a good time. The location is super convenient.
