We have the following payment options available to you when paying your Carroll County property taxes or vehicle fees. Please choose a method of payment that will be convenient for you and will give you the best assurance that your payment will arrive on time. If you choose to mail your payment, make sure that you have a proper U.S. Postal Service postmark.

Pay in person

Pay in person by visiting Carroll County Treasurer, 114 East 6th St., Carroll, IA 51401. You may pay with Debit or Credit Card. Applicable service fees apply.

By Credit Card Online 

(for Property Taxes & Motor Vehicle Renewals only) 
Property tax payers are able to pay their property taxes on-line , by e-Check, or with a credit card (Discover, MasterCard or Visa.) Through a special arrangement made available by the Iowa State Treasurer's Association, this service is available to counties at no charge.

By Mail

Property tax and vehicle renewal payments can be made by check or money order. DO NOT SEND CASH by mail.

Make payable to:             Lisa Wagner, Carroll County Treasurer

Mail payment to:             Carroll County Treasurer
                                               P.O. Box 68
                                               Carroll, IA 51401

Do not postdate your check. If your check is returned to you for non-sufficient funds, you will be charged a $30.00 service charge.

Money order
The Treasurer's Office accepts money orders as payment.

If you choose to mail your payment, please mail it early. Also, be sure to affix the correct amount of postage on the envelope--including extra postage for oversized and/or heavy envelopes. We cannot accept mail that has postage due. Mailed payments must have a U.S. Postal Service postmark dated on or before the due date to avoid late interest.

The U.S. Postal Service postmark is the only date recognized for date of mailing. We do not accept the date written on your check or a business metered date as proof of the mailing date. Before mailing your payment, check with your local post office to make sure the postmark date will be prior to the interest and/or penalty date. If you want to be sure that your payment has a postmark before the interest and/or penalty date, have the post office postmark the envelope in your presence.
