Cedar County Collector of Revenue

Lisa Nelson


What are the Duties of the County Collector?

The Cedar County Collector of Revenue is an elected official responsible for collecting current and delinquent property taxes for political subdivisions within the county.  These are state approved property tax levies.  The Collector is bonded.  We strive to serve the taxpayers of Cedar County with friendly service and updated technology.

The Collector is Responsible for:

  • Collecting and distributing railroad and utilities, real estate, and personal property taxes.
  • Bankruptcy Payments
  • Pre-pay Payments
  • Mailing of Real Estate and Personal Property Tax Statements
  • Mortgage Company Payments
  • Issuing Merchants Licenses
  • Conducting delinquent land tax sale the fourth Monday of August each year
  • Issuing certificate of purchase, tax sale redemption and tax sale issues.


About Your Taxes

Real Estate and Personal Property taxes are levied annually and the statements are mailed out in November.  Tax Payments are due by December 31st of each year, if paying by mail the postmark determines the month paid.  Payments postmarked received after December 31st must include penalty and interest charges.  If a tax bill is not received by December 1st, please contact the collector's office at 417.276.6700 Ext. 224.  Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the obligation to pay taxes and applicable late fees.  If you are paying taxes after December 31st, please refer to the delinquent payment chart on the right side of the statement.

Real Estate Taxes:

The tax liability on real estate remains with the property.

Personal Property Taxes:

Taxes are assessed as of January 1st.  Taxes are due for the entire year regardless if the property is no longer owned or has been moved from Cedar County.  State law requires that personal property taxes be paid before license plates on a vehicle can be issued or renewed.  The Department of Revenue, License Bureau accepts a paid tax receipt to verify that taxes have been paid.
