Real Property Tax Information
Real Property & Mobile Home taxes are due either in the
Treasurers office or postmarked by April 30, 2015. For your convenience,
we also have a tax drop box at the south end of Administrative Annex building that will be
open until midnight of April 30th. Tax amounts due are not listed
on-line. Please either check your tax notices or call our office for the correct amount if
you are uncertain what amount is due.
License Plate Fees
Vehicle licence plate fees are going up 20% as of April 1, 2015. The old
fees are still in effect until March 31, 2015 as long as they are physically renewed by
5pm. Anyone that is due to renew during the month of May can come in and renew in March.
June on can not, (less you did not renew last June on, you could still get the old fees to
finish up to your renewal date if done by march 31).
IF WE RECEIVE A RENEWAL REQUEST BY MAIL AFTER MARCH 31, 2015 ADDITIONAL FEES WILL BE DUE
AND WE CAN NOT PROCESS THE REQUEST UNTIL WE HAVE THE ADDITIONAL FEES. Any questions please
call the Treasurers office 605-578-1862.

clearly visible. The Department of Game, Fish and Parks shall collect the annual permit
fee imposed by this section and shall deposit the fees in the snowmobile trails fund
