This year the County Treasurer will hold the annual tax sale of any property with unpaid taxes online. The registration and the tax sale itself will all be done online. The Board of Supervisors approved a professional services agreement with Govtech Services, Inc. (GTS) of Clive, Iowa. GTS does the current web site for the County Treasurer for property tax payments and motor vehicle payments.
With the tax sale being done online, this will eliminate the cost for the rental of the Convention Center, it will eliminate the two people from the computer department to set up the computers and will eliminate the time in the Tax Department preparing for the registration process. The bidders will pay the company, $30 per bidder.
The tax sale is scheduled on the third Monday in June.
