Property owners are reminded to bring their tax stubs with their payment to ensure proper credit. To avoid penalty on the second installment, payment must be received in the Treasurer’s Office by Monday, April 1. Penalty will begin to apply April 2.

E-check and credit card payments are also accepted online at Property owners will need their receipt number to pay by E-check, and this can be found on their tax statement.

For convenience, the Allamakee County Treasurer’s Office does accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and debit cards in its office for payments on taxes and motor vehicle registrations.
