Welcome to Adams County, Iowa. Enjoy online payment options for your convenience!

To adhere to social distancing guidelines we encourage that property tax payments and registration renewals be mailed, paid on-line or deposited in the courthouse drop box on the west side of the courthouse on Benton Avenue.  Please indicate if you would like a receipt.

DRIVER'S LICENSES:  Drivers Licenses are by appointment only. This includes testing.  Call 641-322-3210 for an appointment.

Discover, Mastercard, Visa and e-Check are accepted for Internet Transactions.  A $30.00 returned check fee will be assessed on any payments returned due to insufficient funds.

Online payments by echeck are only $0 .25 per transaction!

TAXES:  To search for taxes by name enter the last name first followed by comma, a space, then all or part of the first name.  If paying by e-check you will be asked to enter your five-digit tax receipt number.  This is located on the upper right corner of your payment stub on your tax statement.

Take the Driver's License practice test - just like the real test! 

Test your knowledge of the rules of the road for the State of Iowa.  The practice tests have been created by the Iowa DOT to provide new drivers with the foundation to safely meet their responsibilities on the road and to remind all drivers of safe driving habits.

 

Veteran Designation:

Iowa veterans can now add a Veteran designation to their drivers license or nonoperator identification cards.  A link to the required form can be found by clicking here. Your County's Veterans Affairs office will need to complete part of that form before the designation can be added to your drivers license or identification card. Please share this post to help spread the word to Veterans.
