With today being the end of September, it means the first half real estate and mobile home taxes are due. Washington County Treasurer Jeffrey Garrett says the payments due now are based off the January 2010 assessment. This assessment covers July 1st of last year through June 30th of this year.
He adds payments can be made in person or deposited and must be paid by today. Starting tomorrow, penalties and interest are attached the first of the month each month until they are paid. Statement coupons must also be submitted with payment.
Payments can be put in the drop box at the Washington County Courthouse, mailed to the Washington County Treasurer, or paid online at iowatreasurers.org .
