Polk County Treasurer


Please consult your tax preparer

Monday, March 27, 2017

Please consult your tax preparer if you are considering paying your property taxes early for tax purposes.  We do not have the expertise to give advice relating to the property tax deduction allowances in the new tax reform bill.  

There has been a significant increase in citizens wishing to prepay their property taxes and with our usual end of year motor vehicle business we are expecting over 1,500 customers to walk into our office to do business on December 29th, 2017. 

Avoid Parking Woes – Renew vehicle tag registration and property taxes online

Monday, September 16, 2013

With heavy construction around the Polk County Administration building access to parking is limited. Try renewing your vehicle tag registrations and paying your property taxes with the eCheck option on the treasurer’s payment website at www.IowaTaxAndTags.gov. The eCheck option is less than the cost of a postage stamp and certainly less than the cost of gas, meter change, and a parking headache. The web service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

More secure? www.IowaTaxAndTags.gov – the most secure government websites are those with a .gov in the web address. Your online payment is safe and secure.

Faster? The fastest way to pay those pesky car tags and property taxes in just a few steps is through www.IowaTaxAndTags.gov.

More cost effective? Pay online with an eCheck (an electronic version of your paper check) for only forty cents at www.IowaTaxAndTags.gov.
