Douglas County Auditor/Treasurer Char Rosenow issues a reminder to owners of a mobile home that first half tax payments are due on or before Friday, Aug. 31.

Payments may be made in person until 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 31. If mailing your tax payment, envelopes must be postmarked no later than Aug. 31 to avoid penalty. Douglas County has installed a tax payment drop box outside the building on the south side of the courthouse for customer convenience. Tax payments may be dropped off there.

Douglas County also offers an ACH direct payment program. With this program, your tax payment will be automatically taken out of the account of your choice on the tax due date. You will receive a notification letter around two weeks prior to the tax due date.

If you would like to receive an ACH form, you may print a copy of the Direct Payment Plan that is on the website at under "I Want To Forms."

The form can be completed and returned to the Douglas County Auditor/Treasurer's office at 305 8th Ave W, Alexandria, MN 56308. For more information, call 320-762-3077.
