MUSCATINE, Iowa–The Muscatine County Administration building reopened its doors to the public Monday Aug. 24. with regular office hours from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Muscatine County Treasurer’s office will limit the number of people that enter their office to eight. Others will have to wait outside to avoid blocking the front entrance doors and to try to maintain social distancing. The Treasurer’s Office recommends all customers wear masks and try to have one person present per transaction. They also strongly encourage all residents to continue to use the drop box outside the building for motor vehicle renewals or property tax payments. The treasurer’s office will mail out receipts within two business days. You may also pay via mail or online for an e-check fee of only 25 cents.
County residents must make property tax payments by Sept. 30. The Treasurer’s Office does not penalize postmarked payments with that date . Please visit www.iowatreasurers.org, available 24/7 for answers to most all of your questions. You can download and print forms and applications, order and pay for personalized plates, or set up for scheduled payments on your property tax. Please try the website first before calling the office; they have a high volume of calls, which takes employees away from helping customers at the counter. If you do call, you may need to leave a message, which the Treasurer’s Office will return by the end of the day.
The Treasurer’s Office provides a supply of envelopes near the drop box, which drops into a secure bank safe checked many times throughout the day. Please use this method to prevent crowding in the lobby. We will also have a quick drop off window for tax payments only that will open soon, but office staff would rather you use the outside box. Muscatine County Treasurer Amy Zybarth and all in her office thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. For more information, call 563-263-6764 or email [email protected]
