Mortgage Escrow Accounts:
If you have an escrow account (taxes and insurance are included in your mortgage payment) you SHOULD NOT receive a real estate tax notice from our office. If you do receive a notice DO NOT PAY IT, forward it to your mortgage company immediately.
The Treasurer receives the annual Tax Roll and Abstract from the Assessor, then prepares and mails tax notices to the property owners or mortgage companies. Address and ownership information is received from said Tax Roll. The Treasurer is responsible for collecting all Ad Valorem taxes. Delinquent personal property may be issued a Personal Tax Warrant. Properties with delinquent Real Estate taxes and Special Assessments will have a lien placed on the property which, if not paid in full, will result in the property being sold.
All revenues received by Nowata County from Ad Valorem taxes and other sources are deposited with the Treasurer and disbursed to the appropriate taxing entities. All county records and financial statements are inspected by The State Auditor and Inspector.
While the Treasurer's Office makes every effort to ensure the correctness, any error contained herein does not constitute a waiver of any tax amounts by or for the County.
