Effective June 1, 2016, The Property Tax Office
will move to 822 Douglas St Suite 102
Welcome to the World of the Woodbury County Treasurer, his deputies and staff. You will find here a knowledgeable, ready to serve group of individuals that staff three departments, all here for the convenience of the residents and taxpayers of Woodbury County.
The Property tax division collects taxes for real estate property, mobile homes, utilities, industrial equipment, machinery, grain and buildings on leased land, and city and county special assessments. The property tax division is also responsible for tax sale duties such as, processing tax sale redemptions, issuing tax sale deeds, processing tax suspensions, and issuing mobile home tax clearances.
The Motor Vehicle Division of the Treasurer's Office issues vehicle titles and registrations and collects all vehicle fees for the residents of Woodbury County. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) issues hunting and fishing licenses, and also processes titles and registrations for boats, ATVs, and snowmobiles.
The main property tax office and the Motor Vehicle Division are both located at 822 Douglas St. There is also a motor vehicle clerk co-located with the driver’s license station at 3005 Hamilton Blvd. The Little Courthouse located in Anthon can do Tax, Motor Vehicle and DNR.
The Woodbury County Treasurer's offices in Sioux City (Motor Vehicle-Trosper/Hoyt Building) and Anthon is one of two treasurer's offices in the state to offer DNR services.
The Woodbury County Treasurer has a unique "economic development" plan. The county's funds are kept in all Woodbury County banks, because they all pay property taxes, and because these funds can then be available to loan back out to Woodbury County residents. The interest earned on the funds is placed in the county general fund, which helps to reduce the property tax asking.
