Plymouth County Treasurer, Shelly Sitzmann, reminds property owners that the second-half real estate and mobile home taxes are now due and can be paid in the office, online, or through the mail. Taxes are delinquent April 1, 2017.
Mail must be postmarked on or before March 31st to avoid delinquent interest.
Send your payment before the last day, as mailing your payment on March 31 does not guarantee a March 31 postmark.
Delinquent interest of 1.5% per month rounded to the nearest dollar attaches to all unpaid taxes on April 1, 2017, and an additional 1.5% penalty on the first of each succeeding month thereafter.
ONLINE PAYMENT is a convenient option available. This can be done by e-check or credit card at www.iowatreasurers.org. Using your credit card online does incur a service fee. However, paying by e-check online costs only 40¢ — which is less than the cost of a postage stamp.
You also have the convenient option online to set up monthly payments.
Online payment of taxes can be done up until midnight on March 31 without penalty. Delinquent interest will begin online at 12:00 am on April 1st.
Any person who needs information on property taxes should contact the Plymouth County Treasurer’s office at 546-7056.
