Scott County is currently accepting service of Tax Appeal Petitions under the following procedures:

These methods of service will only be available until 4:30 p.m. CST on the date determined by the legislature to be the filing deadline. The County will not acknowledge any petitions delivered after the deadline. Because you will still be responsible for filing your tax petition by the filing deadline, Scott County strongly encourages you to consider time constraints when using these methods.


  1. If possible all petitions should be served by email
  2. Email shall be submitted by sending one email to all four of the following email addresses:

Use this line for copy and pasting purposes:;;;

3. The subject of the email shall be: Tax Appeal Service #Name of Petitioner# v Scott County.

4. We will send you 2 reply email acknowledgements of the service; 1 from the County Attorney’s Office and 1 combined Assessor/Auditor/Treasurer reply.

5. You must still file the petition with the Administrator of the District Court.  You may use the email replies as proof of service.

6. If the two replies have not been received within 24 hours of submission please follow up or resubmit as appropriate.
