Can I make a partial payment?
Yes, partial payments are accepted for current or delinquent real estate or mobile home property tax. If you are paying delinquent mobile home or real estate property tax, the amount of the partial payment must be greater than the late interest and cost due. Partial payments are not accepted for special assessments or tax sale redemption payments. Please indicate on your payment that it is a partial payment of tax due. We will apply your payment and give/send you a receipt and a balance due statement. For more information concerning partial payments, please call 515-386-5675.
When are the taxes due?

The first half of property tax is due by September 30th of each year. Late interest will begin accruing October 1st.
