Changes to Linn County’s Treasurer’s Website

Linn County transitions to new real estate system

The Linn County Treasurer’s Office portion of the www.IowaTaxandTags.gov website will be unavailable from 9 p.m. Oct. 3 through approximately Oct. 24 for property tax payments while Linn County transitions to a new real estate system. The public will still be able to pay for their vehicle registrations online.

During this timeframe, this is the message that will be displayed on the Linn County property tax page of the website: “Online property tax payments are not being accepted while Linn County transitions to a new real estate system. Please check back afterOctober 24th.”

During this transition period, Linn County Treasurer’s Office employees will only have viewing privileges of the information contained online. Staff will be able to accept and deposit property tax payments, but will not be able to post them “paid” or issue a receipt until the transition is complete.

“We understand this transition period will be inconvenient for our customers, and we appreciate their patience,” Linn County Treasurer Sharon Gonzalez stated in a press release. “There are a number of benefits to look forward to once the transition to the new real estate system is complete.”

Benefits of the new real estate system include: 

  • Linn County will use a website called eGov that will create an online history for a piece of property. Gross and net taxes will be available on the website, which is used frequently by realtors and will reduce the need to call the Treasurer’s Office because the information will be accessible online.
  • Property owners will be able to print a lost tax bill from home.
  • Customers will have receipts showing the exact day and time their property tax payment was made, including the type of payment and check number.
  • The amount of time it takes to create the file for the annual property tax statements will be reduced from three weeks to just a few days.
  • For questions, call the Linn County Treasurer’s Office at (319) 892-5550.
