Polk County Auditor

Property Tax

The County Auditor receives property values from the County Assessor, applies State rollbacks, applies local taxing entity tax rates, then transmits levied property taxes to the County Treasurer for collection.

The County Auditor is also responsible for maintaining real estate records by tracking all ownership transfers that effect taxation, including but not limited to deeds, contracts and right-of-way easements.
