Property Taxes

Did you know you can make partial payments on your property taxes?  Partial payments are accepted for current or delinquent real estate or mobile home taxes. The amount of the partial payment must be greater than the late interest and costs due. Partial payments cannot be accepted for special assessments or tax sale redemption payments. You may make partial payments online, mailing it to your County Treasurer or stopping in to the office during regular hours.  Partial payments are an excellent way to make sure you taxes are paid on time while operating on a budget.

Driver's License

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the Greene County Schools and are offering 'Skip the Trip.' This program will allow students to take the driver knowledge test required to obtain a driver's instruction permit.  This will save the you time by reducing multiple trips to the courthouse if the student does note pass on his/her first try.  This will also will keep the students from missing hours of school.  The student will still need to come to the courthouse with their parent or legal guardian to be issued an instruction permit.  However, there is a parent affidavit that can be used in substitution of a parents presence.   To prepare for a successful knowledge test, students should study the Iowa Driver's Manual and online practice test, both available at: https://iowadot.gov/mvd/driverslicense/manuals-and-practice-tests
