Tax statements out to property owners

Linn County property owners should receive tax statements this week, according to Andy Stevens, Linn County assessor and tax collector.

Statements will be mailed on Wednesday, Oct. 19, and should arrive within a few days, Stevens said.

There are about 60,000 property accounts, Stevens said, with a total real market value of more than $25 billion and $12.3 billion assessed value.

This year’s tax statements include a flyer that explains due dates, payment options and some programs available for tax relief.

Payments can be made in-person at the Assessor’s Office, Room 214, on the second floor of the Linn County Courthouse, in a drop box on the west side of the courthouse entrance or on-line through Point & Pay, which charges $3.95 per transaction through Visa debit.

All other credit and debit cards assess a 2.5% of transaction amount with a minimum fee of $2. Also, $1.50 for e-check payments.

The automated phone system number is 844-399-6193 and same fees apply.
