During these unprecedented times, our goal is to continue to serve Boone County taxpayers by providing essential services. However, will we be doing so with minimal staffing and modifications to normal business operations.

We encourage taxpayers to call or email the Collector’s office with questions or concerns. Paid property tax receipts and statements of non-assessments can be emailed. Most local vehicle licensing offices will accept these electronic copies. In addition, paid property tax records are provided weekly to the DOR for online licensing renewals or in-person visits to local license offices.

If you need to make a payment we request that payments be mailed, placed in our drop box at the Government Center entrance at the corner of 9th and Ash St., made online or over the phone by calling 1-877-690-3729.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.
