Budget Statement Mailing for Fiscal Year 2025

IOWA COUNTY, IOWA – March 14, 2024 – Property owners in Iowa County and across the state will soon receive a mailing containing information about the proposed property taxation for the next budget year that starts July 1. A new state law (Iowa Code 24.2A) requires the Iowa County Auditor to mail a budget statement to property owners by March 20.

The budget statement will include, as required by Iowa Code 24.2A, the following information for taxes payable in September 2024 and March 2025 for a property owner’s school district, county, and city:

  • Date, time, and location of the first public hearing to consider proposed property taxation
  • Phone number and website
  • Current, effective, and proposed taxation
  • Current distribution of taxes
  • Comparison of current and proposed taxation for a residential property valued at $100,000 and a commercial property valued at $150,000

The budget statement is not a property tax bill. The budget statement does not include proposed property taxation for smaller taxing authorities, such as Community Colleges, Assessor, Township, or Agricultural Extension.  Property owners with more than one property may receive multiple letters if those properties are taxed by different school districts, counties, or cities.

Additional information regarding the budget statement will be made available on the Iowa Department of Management’s website at https://dom.iowa.gov/property-taxes on or after March 20, 2024.

Questions about the public hearing or the proposed property taxation should be directed to the School District, County or City the contact information will be included in the budget statement.
