Property tax laws among most complex in U.S. The Waterloo-Cedar Falls-Waverly area has a lot to offer in the way of recreation and education, but there’s still no way to avoid taxes. Iowa’s property tax laws are among the most complex in the nation and could leave homeowners scratching their heads each fall when tax bills arrive from the Black Hawk County Treasurer’s Office. Seven different local governments eventually get a share of those property tax payments, which are payable in two installments — one in September and the other in March. The payments finance governments that operate on a fiscal year starting July 1. The property tax system starts with the assessed value of a property as determined by the county assessor’s office. That value can change annually either by an assessor’s review or by equalization orders, which are mandated changes in value ordered by the Iowa Department of Revenue and Finance. Property owners can appeal values they deem unfair at the Assessor’s Office in the Black Hawk County Courthouse. Anyone who owns a home they live in also is eligible to have a small portion of their value removed for taxing purposes by applying for a “homestead tax credit” at the Assessor’s Office. Several other tax credits, including one for businesses and

each year for the various classes of property. Six of the local taxing bodies set property tax rates each winter or early spring when budgets are adopted. Those bodies

are the city government, school district, county government, assessor’s office, Hawkeye Community College and agricultural extension service. The state of Iowa has a standing small property tax rate. Those seven tax rates are multiplied by the taxable value of a property to determine annual tax bills. Meanwhile, people purchasing goods and services — excluding groceries and certain other items — pay a 7 percent sales tax in Black Hawk County. Five percent of the sales tax is statewide and supports state government operations. One percent is statewide and supports school building construction and renovation. The remaining 1 percent comes from a 1-cent local option sales taxes approved by voters to be used by city governments as determined by the voters. Both Waterloo and Cedar Falls use their share of the sales tax for street reconstruction and resurfacing. State government operates largely on a state income tax and numerous “use taxes,” which include a tax on gasoline sales. While Iowa appears to have a larger income tax rate than many other states, it is one of the few states to allow a deduction for federal income taxes paid.

Welcome to Waverly Located in northeast Iowa, Waverly is a beautiful, extraordinary community of nearly 10,000 residents. It is a place for families to live and a community where residents enjoy a high quality of life, friendly and progressive merchants, and a college town atmosphere. Incorporated in 1859, Waverly recently celebrated its rich history during its Sesquicentennial celebration. The city was founded along the Cedar River by William Patterson Harmon who is also credited for establishing Waverly as the Bremer County Seat. Over the years, Waverly has grown with the establishment of Wartburg College and the introduction of rail transportation. Today, Waverly is a vibrant, progressive community with a diverse commercial, agricultural, financial and industrial base.
