Services During COVID-19
Due to COVID-19, Linn County has closed most County buildings to the public once again to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services. The closure will remain in effect until public health conditions improve and allow for modifications.
Details are listed below on how to conduct business with the Property Tax division of the Treasurer's Office.
Property Tax Payments
Property tax payments can be completed in the following ways:
- Online at iowataxandtags.org.
- By mailing payment to Linn County Treasurer at 935 2nd Street SW, Cedar Rapids, IA 52404. Make check payable to Linn County Treasurer. Must be postmarked by Sept. 30.
- Via drop box in front of the Linn County Public Service Center. Be sure to include your contact information when dropping business items in the drop box.
If paying by mail or drop box, please include the stub portion of the tax statement to ensure proper credit. Residents who would like a receipt must include a self-addressed stamped envelope with their payment.
