Second half tax installment due by March 2021.


Effective Monday, June 8, 2020, Des Moines County Buildings will be open to the public. Access to the courthouse will be limited to the basement entrance located on the south side of the building.

Limited space will be available in the treasurer’s office due to the social distancing requirements currently in place, so for faster or more convenient service while COVID-19 remains active, we strongly encourage the public to continue doing business online, by mail or by one of our two drop boxes - one is located in the entry way on the south side of the courthouse and available during work hours of 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The other drop box is located outside of the courthouse on the south side in between the building and parking lot (available at any hour).

We thank you and appreciate your patience and understanding as we have operated and continue to operate during these unprecedented times and circumstances! You may contact our office with any questions at the phone numbers below:
