Real Estate & Mobile Home taxes are due

Posted March 10, 2018 at 8:19 pm

Plymouth County Treasurer Shelly Sitzmann reminds property owners that the second-half of 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 3, 2018. Since the last day of March falls on the weekend, people have Monday, April 2 to pay without penalty.

Mail must be postmarked on or before April 2 to avoid delinquent interest costs.

Send payment before the last day, as mailing payments on April 2 does not guarantee an April 2 postmark.

Delinquent interest of 1.5 percent per month rounded to the nearest dollar attaches to all unpaid taxes on April 3, 2018, and an additional 1.5 percent 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 a credit card online does incur a service fee. However, paying by e-check online costs only 40 cents — which is less than the cost of a postage stamp.

People also have the convenient option online to set up payments monthly, weekly, bi-monthly, even semi-annually.

Online payment of taxes can be done up until midnight on April 2 without penalty. Delinquent interest will begin online at 12:00 a.m. on April 3.

Anyone who needs information on property taxes should contact the Plymouth County Treasurer’s Office at 712-546-7056.
