| Treasurer's Office - Property Tax
If you are a new owner of a property, contact the Treasurer's Office at 641-939-8230 or by email, to update the mailing address and obtain a tax statement if you have not received one.
You will receive a tax statement from the Treasurer's Office, regardless if you have a mortgage or not. You do not need to send this statement to your mortgage company. If your taxes are in escrow, please do not send a separate tax payment to the Treasurer's Office.
If your mortgage company is responsible for payment of your tax, you may check online to verify they have been paid. Generally, escrow payments are made in the last week before taxes are due.
The annual tax sale is held the third Monday in June at 9 a.m. Any delinquency must be offered for sale at the Regular or Public Bidder Tax Sale. The registration fee for a tax bidder is $25.
Property tax statements are sent out once per year in August. This statement will include stubs to make payment in both September and March.
You will not receive a reminder that your second half of taxes are due in March. If the last day or either September or March falls on a weekend, you will have the following business day to pay your taxes without penalty.
Property taxes are typically paid in two installments, one coming in September (1st half) and March (2nd half) each year.
Property taxes can be paid in full in September if desired.
There are several methods of paying one's property taxes. To assist in the process, we have created a useful guide to paying property taxes in Hardin County.
You can pay either the full year in September or just the half that is due. Only one billing is sent out for your tax bill.
If you do not pay the full year in September, be sure to remember you will have the second half due in the month of March the following year.
Be sure to bring your tax bill with you to pay your taxes or include the coupons if you mail your payments to the office.
If you’ve bought or sold property be sure to know if the buyer or seller is supposed to pay the taxes on each parcel. This is something that should have been discussed in your closing agreement. Since our tax bills are only billed once a year in the month of August, you will not receive a tax bill from us because it has already been sent to the previous owner.
Remember that you can pay online, in the office, through the mail or in our drop box.
The penalty is charged at 1.5% per month rounded to the nearest whole dollar.
