CEDAR VALLEY LIFE
Iowa’s property tax laws can be a head-scratcher The Waterloo-Cedar FallsWaverly 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, such as one for military service, also are available. But some property owners don’t pay taxes based on the full assessed value. The state sets different “rollback” orders each year for the various classes of property.

LIBRARIES Waterloo, Cedar Falls libraries The Waterloo and Cedar Falls public libraries are two valuable assets for residents in the metro area. Founded in 1896, the Waterloo Public Library began service in two rented rooms, one on the east side and one on the west side of the Cedar River. In 1906, the library moved to its new Carnegie buildings, which saw extensive remodeling and
Iowa, incorporated in 1859 by the Cedar Valley Horticultural and Literary Association. In 1877, W.C. Bryant moved to secure a vote of the city to make the library forever free and to be controlled by the city. Cedar Falls applied for and received a Carnegie grant, and on Aug. 25, 1903, the ﬁnished building was accepted by the City Council. Cedar Falls voters approved a $3.25 million bond issue October 2001 to help ﬁnance the con-
struction of a larger building. CFPL, which moved into a new home at the same location in March 2004, now houses a collection of more than 120,000 books, as well as a large collection of magazines, books on CD, videos and CDs. There is no fee to obtain a library card; ﬁll out the application and present an ID with your current address.

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.
