Vehicle changes must be made with the assessor’s office. They may be reached at 572-564-2445.
State statutes have changed beginning January 1, 2018 regarding penalties for paying late. The penalty will increase from previous years. The assessor’s office’s penalty for turning in your assessment sheet late will also increase.
