March Property Taxes Due

The second installment of Real Estate and Mobile Home tax is due by March 31, 2020.  Governor Reynolds issued a new proclamation on 4/2/2020, that waives late penalty on property tax payments through April 30, 2020, to help give some assistance to Iowans dealing with the impact of COVID-19’s arrival to our state. Payments must be postmarked by April 30, 2020, paid online at  www.IowaTaxandTags.org by April 30, 2020, or dropped off at the Poweshiek County Treasurer drop box at the south end of the Courthouse by April 30th to avoid a late penalty.  Interest of 1.5% will be added May 1st, 2020.

Property owners must return the payment stub from their statement along with payment.  By returning the appropriate payment stub or indicating their receipt number on the payment check the property owner will insure proper crediting of the tax payment.

Our website is www.iowataxandtags.org which allows you to pay 24 hours a day. The internet payment system will accept both current and delinquent payment of property tax.  Redemption of a Tax Sale Certificate must be taken care of at the Treasurer’s Office at the Courthouse, please call ahead to make sure you have all proper documents and payoff amounts are correct before dropping them off in the Treasurer’s drop box at south end of Courthouse.
