SCOTT COUNTY TAX COURT PETITION SERVICE DURING COVID-19 EMERGENCY

For the period of the COVID19 Emergency, Scott County is 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 for 2020 tax appeals. 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.

OPTION 1 – EMAIL

  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:

  1. The subject of the email shall be: Tax Appeal Service #Name of Petitioner# v Scott County.
  2. 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.
  3. You may use the email replies attached to your petition during eFiling to document service on the required County offices.
  4. If the two replies have not been received within 24 hours of submission please follow up or resubmit as appropriate.

OPTION 2 – DROP BOX FOR USE WHEN EMAIL IS NOT POSSIBLE

  1. Scott County has placed a blue drop box outside of its Government Center entrance.
