Tax payments due by March 31
Second half real estate and mobile home taxes are due March 1, 2014, and must be paid by March 31, 2014. A penalty of 1½ percent per month, rounded to the nearest whole dollar, with a $1 minimum per parcel, will attach on April 1, 2014.
Statement coupons must accompany payments. Payments may be made in person at the Washington County Treasurer’s Office, mailed to the Washington County Treasurer, PO Box 889, Washington, IA 52353, deposited in the drop box located at the west entrance to the courthouse, or, paid online with a credit card or e-check at <www.iowatreasurers.org>.
Payments mailed must have a US Postal Service postmark date of March 31, 2014, or before, to avoid penalty. Predated checks will not be accepted as a substitute for the postmark.
Taxes remaining unpaid on May 31, 2014, will be advertised as delinquent. Those remaining unpaid on June 16, 2014, will be offered at the annual tax sale.
The Washington County Treasurer’s Office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.
