Experience The Convenience -- Pay Online! 



Discover, MasterCard, Visa and eCheck (electronic funds transfer) are accepted for Internet transactions.  This service will deliver your property tax and / or motor vehicle payment to the country treasurer on your behalf.  Credit/Debit cards may be used for transactions done in the office for a service charge.  We also have a drop box for Treasurer’s Office and Clerk of Court business on the back side of the courthouse, near the Sheriff’s Office entrance.

Pay Property Taxes

You may pay your property tax by eCheck or credit card through this Pay Property Taxes Link.  If paying by eCheck you will need to enter a receipt number as your PIN.  This number is located in the lower left hand corner of your tax stub.  Past due tax payments are accepted also.  Please contact the County Treasurer for payment of Tax Sale Certificates as they may NOT be redeemed over the internet site.  A surcharge of $15 will be assessed for a dishonored check, draft, eCheck or order as prescribed in Iowa Code.

Pay Your Vehicle Tags

 You may renew online if you received a renewal notice through the US Postal Service that contains a PIN number.  Click on this link. Accepted online payment methods are eCheck, Discover, MasterCard and Visa. Online service is not available if the vehicle registration fees are past due, proof of SR22 insurance is required or any state debts are owed.  An enhancement is in development to allow renewal of delinquent vehicles and half year licenses.  A surcharge of $15 will be assessed for a dishonored check, draft, eCheck or order as prescribed in Iowa Code.
