To avoid a late fee real estate and mobile home taxes must be turned in to the county treasurer by October 1st.

The fiscal year’s first half of real estate and mobile home taxes were due September 1st and Washington County Treasurer Jeff Garrett says they must be paid by October 1st to avoid a penalty. After the first of the month a penalty of 1.5% rounded to the nearest whole dollar with a minimum of $1 per parcel will be attached. Payments must be accompanied by statement coupons. Washington County payments may be made in person at the treasurer’s office in the Washington County Courthouse, or they can be deposited in the drop box on the west side of the building. Also, taxes may be paid online at IowaTreasurers.org.
