Driver's License Offices Closed
ALL Iowa Driver's License Offices will be CLOSED on Thursday, October 6, 2016, due to a mandatory statewide Iowa DOT staff training. The motor vehicle and property tax departments will be open, however staff will be at a minimum.

Property Taxes Due September 30th
Hardin County Treasurer, Machel Eichmeier, would like to remind property owners that the first installment of property taxes is due Friday, September 30th, 2016.  Property tax information may be obtained online at www.iowatreasurers.org or by calling the Treasurer’s Office at (641) 939-8230. To avoid penalty on the first installment, your payment must be received in the Treasurer’s Office or postmarked by Friday, September 30, 2016.

Payments may also be posted online by E-check for less than the cost of a postage stamp! There is just a $0.40 per transaction fee at www.iowatreasurers.org. Credit card payments are also accepted online. There is a non-refundable Service Delivery Fee to pay by credit card.  When paying online by credit card, you will have the opportunity to review the total charge and exit the system prior to completing the transaction.

All citizens of Hardin County are invited to visit the website at www.iowatreasurers.org. This site allows you to do business with your County Treasurer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Resources available on the site include vehicle registration renewals; property tax, motor vehicle and driver’s license forms; answers to frequently asked questions (F.A.Q’s); and important dates and information for conducting business with your County Treasurer.
