Budget Mailer

Budget Statement Mailing

Property owners in Iowa will soon receive a new mailing which will contain information about the proposed property tax rates for the next fiscal year. This statement is not a property tax bill but will contain information for taxes payable in September 2024 and March 2025.


Iowa Code 24.2A requires that a budget statement be mailed to property owners after March 20 of each year. The purpose of this statement is to provide taxpayers with budget information about the proposed city, school, and county tax rates. However, it will not include proposed budgets for smaller taxing authorities, such as the community college, assessor's office, townships, and agricultural extension service.

The budget statement will include the following information:
• Date, time, and location of public hearings to consider proposed tax rates for next fiscal year
• Phone number and website (if applicable) for each associated taxing authority
• Current, effective, and proposed tax rate information
• Comparison to current, effective, and proposed tax rates
• How current taxes levied by the school, city, and county are distributed
• Comparison of how taxes would be distributed in the current and proposed budget years

Additional information regarding the budget statement will be made available online at https//dom.iowa.gov/property-taxes on or after March 20, 2024.
