Property Tax Questions

As a property owner in Chickasaw County, you should be aware of the following requirements.

Value Notification:
The Chickasaw County Assessor determines property values and provides notification to property owners. Please contact the Assessor's Office at 641-394-2813 for the latest valuation information on your property. 

New Ownership: 
If you are a new owner of a property, contact the Treasurer's Office at 641-394-2107 to update the mailing address and obtain a tax statement if you have not received one.

If your mortgage company is responsible for payment of your tax, contact them to confirm they have the correct tax information for your property.

Late Interest:
Failure to receive a tax statement is not a defense to the payment of the tax and any late interest that has accrued. Iowa law requires the Treasurer to assess late interest on all delinquent payments at the rate of 1.5% per month, rounded to the nearest dollar.

The U.S. Postal Service postmark is the only date recognized for date of mailing. We do not accept the date written on your check or a business metered date as proof of the mailing date. Before mailing your payment, check with your local post office to make sure the postmark date will be prior to the late interest date. If you want to be sure that your payment has a postmark before the late interest date, have the post office postmark the envelope in your presence. 

Annual Tax Statements:
Annual tax statements are mailed once a year in the month of August. The tax statement has two detachable payment stubs.

Your property tax may be paid in full or in two installments. The first half is due on September 1 and becomes delinquent after September 30. The second half is due March 1 and becomes delinquent after March 31.  If the last day is not a business day the due date is extended to the next business day. 

If you have not received a tax statement, please contact the Treasurer's office for a duplicate statement at 641-394-2107.
