Make payable to: Dallas County Treasurer

Mail payment to:

Dallas County Treasurer
Tax Division
801 Court Street, Room 201
Adel, IA 50003

If you choose to mail your payment, please mail it early and use the envelope that is provided with your  vehicle statement. 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 a 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.

Check
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.
